In November of 2016 one of our local deputies was ambushed in a remote area of the county. The assailant shot at the officer six times at close range, but miraculously the only wound inflicted on the officer was a gunshot to the hand. The officer returned fire shooting the assailant in the head. The motive for the ambush is unclear, but the assailant disliked law enforcement and I suspect he thought he could kill the officer and get away with it because there were no witnesses. Unfortunately, people of faith fall into a similar trap when we think there are no witnesses. “The eyes of the LORD are everywhere, keeping watch on the wicked and the good” (Proverbs 15:3 NIV).
