Where do we draw the line?

Deuteronomy 29:29 (AMP) “The secret things belong unto the Lord our God, but the things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all of the words of this law. ”

Often people say, “Life is so complicated.” This statement is expressed depending on the situation or during conversation with other people.

When something happens, there is a sudden awareness of knowing what had not been known previously. Something has been revealed. It is also the case among friends and family, any secret being told is no longer a secret because the words have been said. Now everybody is conscious of something thanks to the new revelation.

If that once-upon-a-time secret is grave, it means the person exposing this should be ready to bear the consequences unless of course, this person has no bearing directly by it.

We all have secrets. By the virtue of being, we all prefer to preserve many things because we long earnestly to protect our dignity. Also we might have friends whom must have told us details of their lives simply because they trusted us so dearly knowing we would not give them up.


Meanwhile, it is imperative not to neglect the fact that humans will forever be humans. In other words, life becomes complicated indeed when people cannot be trusted with our secrets.

As we knew the possibility of being betrayed by our so-called friends, family members, or whosoever, is this not enough for us to grasp the truth of knowing where to draw the line? What can we tell out? What must we keep to ourselves? Are we obliged to share this with this person rather than with God?

To wit, let us choose instead to store up our secrets with God because He is the only faithful friend that will not give us away and won’t give us a broken heart.
