As I went to check my email quickly this morning, I was saddened to read of David Letterman’s apparent confessions last night on late night television about inappropriate behavior with co-workers.

From the news story, it appears that Letterman was being threatened by someone who “knew details” and was demanding money in order to stay quiet.

Letterman shared this saga with his audience last night, and I’m sure today feels in some ways “better” having gotten some of his secrets out in the open.

I guess as I begin the day, my thoughts are these:

Who do we really think we’re hiding from in the long run?

What will it take for us to come clean?

How long do we think we can live two lives and get away with it?

Even if the whole world never knew our secrets, do we not realize that God knows them all?

And then my thoughts go deeper:

What am I hiding today?

Who am I really when noone is looking?

If someone followed me with a hidden camera, what parts of my day would I be ashamed of?

Lord, help me to be wholeheartedly yours and forgive me for those weak moments when I become more about me than about You. Help me listen to the words You gave to Solomon many years ago and remember that You are the same God today that You were yesterday. Help me seek you continually, Lord. In Your Son’s Name, Amen

I Chronicles 28:9
“And you, my son Solomon, acknowledge the God of your father, and serve him with wholehearted devotion and with a willing mind, for the LORD searches every heart and understands every motive behind the thoughts. If you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will reject you forever.
