If God has saved our face in shameful situations, averted getting caught in the act of private sins; it is simply because God's love does not permit his children to be disgraced. Have not an iota of doubt that this protection is not God's approval of our sin. The innumerable blessings and providence in our life is no sign that we are any better and we have God’s approval on our side. God lets His sun shine on the wicked and good alike When we preach about our material blessings, we must be careful not to let our brothers think that we follow Jesus for blessings. Merely attaining salvation or avoiding hell should not be our life’s goal but to be Christ like.
