Freep mail me to be on or off the Daily Bread ping list


Supernatural Surveillance

April 4, 2013

Not far from my house, authorities have rigged a camera to snap pictures of drivers who race through red lights. The offenders later receive in the mail a ticket along with a “red-light photo,” which is visual proof of their traffic violation.

Sometimes I think of God in the same way I think of that camera—He’s up there, just waiting to catch me doing the wrong thing. While God does see our sin (Heb. 4:13), He sees and takes interest in our good deeds as well. Due to His supernatural surveillance, God sees the size of our sacrifice when we give money to the church or to those in need (Mark 12:41-44). He hears our private prayers (Matt. 6:6). And when we fast, we can carry on as usual being assured that our “Father . . . sees in secret” (v.18).

Knowing that God sees everything frees us from thinking about the watchful eyes of others. When we do what is right, we need no applause from onlookers; when we sin, we do not need to worry about our reputation once we settle the issue with God and anyone we’ve harmed. We can rest knowing that “the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him” (2 Chron. 16:9).

Lord, thank You for Your all-seeing nature. You know
everything I think and do. Help me to value Your
approval and live according to Your standards,
no matter what anyone else may think.
Others see what we do, but God sees why we do it.

Read: Matthew 6:1-6,16-18

Your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. —Matthew 6:18
Bible in a Year:
Ruth 1-4; Luke 8:1-25

A good day, thanks! About 3 blocks from the agency I worked for the last several years. A difficult spot to get in and out of, though. No one on this project that I've met before.

Another of our Engineering jobs was to keep the Chinese Engineering companies supplied with their many needs. One episode involved a Japanese unit dug in on a mountain top. After many attempts at getting them off, the Chinese Engineers tunneled in under the mountain top and planted 14 tons of TNT, supplied by us, and proceeded to blow the top off the mountain and the Japanese just happened to go with it.

The Chinese were a very curious people and many of them lost their lives because of that curiosity. One day we heard an explosion at headquarters and found that a Chinese soldier wondered what would happen when you banged a Bazooka projectile against the rim of a fifty gallon drum. Nothing, so he pulled the safety pin and tried again. This time it worked, killing him and 13 others. On one of my road inspection trips, we were staying at a field hospital. At about 5 AM there was a loud explosion from the Chinese ward. One of the patients put a Japanese grenade in the stove to see what happened. It removed seven from the roll call that morning.

On another occasion we received a call for a medivac from an airfield that had been mined by the Japanese using 300# aerial bombs attached to personnel mines. We believe that our Engineers had pulled one of the mines and had put a safety clip under the firing pin. It was also assumed that one of the curious Chinese pulled the clip and another hit the firing pin, A plane flew in, picked up three who were still alive and tried for a hospital, but was all in vain. We received a photo showing about 20+ bodies lying in a circle like the opening of a flower. What a waste!!! Two American Engineers in the bunch.

Well, I’ve heard that “curiosity killed the cat” but this is a bit more “explosive”!!

Your Dad had a way with words...and YOU need to publish these words! It’s a GREAT read!....and chronicles some things that are lost when these of the best generation are gone!

Of course, that would mean that you would need to quit posting them here...or you might be plagiarized before you finish! :)

More curiosity...

The Chinese did not get much salt in their food, so they would pull the slug out of a rifle cartridge and eat some of the gunpowder, then replace the slug. A friend was coaching on the rifle range, when a Chinese soldier pulled the trigger. The slug stuck in the barrel and before my buddy could stop him, he had fired another shot The breech got the Chinese right between the eyes and then creased the top of my buddy's head. He was lucky!! They had to be watched every second.
