Proverbs 24:12 NLT - "Don't excuse yourself by saying, 'Look, we didn't know.' For God understands all hearts, and He sees you. He who guards your soul knows you knew. He will repay all people as their actions deserve."
Remember all the excuses you used to use when you were a kid? "Don't blame me!" "It's not my fault!" "I didn't know!" Nowadays those are the same things most politicians are saying!
Our Daily Verse makes it very clear that when you say, "I didn't know!" God knows better! He knows when you were told and how many times you were told and He won't let you get away with a flimsy excuse like that.
When you know you shouldn't have done something because you really did know, then own up to your fault, "man up" in other words, and accept your guilt, admit it, ask for forgiveness, and learn from your sin. God already knows the truth. Agree with Him and ask for His help you to turn your life around. He will, gladly!
