For several years it has been my privilege to serve as a substitute teacher in the Deer Park Public Schools. Recently while teaching in the beautiful Deer Park High School I noticed a sign on the classroom wall. It was a photo of a person’s face, or what many call “mug shots” – the before and after picture of the same face. Underneath the two pictures were the words, “1 year of Meth use” – The first picture showed a lovely face. The second picture showed the same face in an appalling, awful, ghastly, horrible, shocking, and terrible way.
As I viewed this poster I was thinking of the scripture in the Holy Bible which says “be sure your sin will find you out.” Numbers 32:23. Yes, even your sin will show in your face. The leadership of Deer Park High School should be commended for allowing this important poster to speak to our youth.
