And she called the name of the LORD that spoke to her, You God see me: for she said, Have I also here looked after him that sees me?…
Here is a young banker. When he was a boy in a country home, his mother bought for him an illuminated card with this text on it. It was framed and hung at the foot of his bed, so that every morning it was the first thing that met his eye when he awoke. By and by he went to a large city and entered a banking establishment. His father's last words to him, as he bade him good-bye, were, "Remember your motto, Thou God seest me." He soon rose to position, securing the unlimited confidence of his employers. Then came the hour of temptation — to enrich himself by taking a large sum of money and running off. It grew upon him and mastered him. All was ready. He stayed behind when the other clerks left the office, He turned the key of the safe and the heavy door swung open. The money was counted. It was in his hands. The deed was all but done, when the old text — the text of his boyhood — flashed out. Conscience awoke. The money fell from his hands. It seemed as if it had a voice — as if it said, "Thou God seest me," and the agonized youth cried out, "O God of my mother, save me from this awful crime." The money was replaced, and the young man was saved.
