I remember the story of that man who wanted to steal a goat. He took his four children and said to them: "You hide there, you hide by my left, you hide at my back, you hide by my right. If you see anybody coming, give me a sign that I will quickly stop whatever I 'm doing."

But as he moved to catch the goat, one of the children exclaimed, "Papa, wait, wait."

The man said, "What is the matter? Is somebody coming?"

The child said, "No, who is watching this way?" He pointed to the sky. In other words the father had taken care of the north, east, south and west but the small child pointed to and asked about heaven? How about God? Does He not see you? The man left the goat.

Those of us who think we can hide anything from God deceive ourselves.

(From a sermon by Daniel Olukoya, Candidates of Heaven and Hell, 5/9/2011)
