Very true

My Granddaughter Naomi has a signature on her email which says, "character is what you do when no one is watching. This is so true. I often hear the joke where people say I never saw a Hearse with a UHaul behind it. Meaning you cannot take it with you. No matter how much money, or diamonds, or property you have, you cannot take them with you when you go. When you stand before that judgement throne the only thing you will have brought with you is your character.
I don't know where it is but there is a verse in the bible which says everything that is secret will someday be revealed. We are only kidding ourselves when we think something we do behind closed doors will be kept a secret, we all live in the same world, and the whole world is planned and controlled by God, and he says our character will be judged and our secrets will be revealed.
I sometimes find myself responsible for other peoples money or assets. I think that if I were a person of little character I would think I could get away with something and no one would know. You can trust a person who is of good character, you could leave your money or assets right on the table and walk away, when you come back they would still sit on the table where you left them. The fact that no one is watching is not a factor. Because character is what you do when no one is watching.
