Happy Trails to You

            Benjamin Sickles could not escape the police in Washington, Pennsylvania. Early on the morning of July 5, Sickles broke into a Subway restaurant and stole nine bags of potato chips.
            He had broken a glass door to get inside and had tried to steal money from the cash register. That proved unsuccessful, so he settled for the bags of chips.
            He might have escaped except that he left bag after bag (all empty!) along his trail. Law enforcement officials simply followed the bags until they led them all the way to Sickles.
            I think we humans look like Benjamin Sickles to God. We engage in our sin and somehow convince ourselves that we are getting away with it. However, we do not realize that the residue of our sin leaves a trail that leads all the way back to us.
            If I may take the last part of Numbers 32:23 out of its context: " may be sure that your sin will find you out.”
