Once upon a time there was a conscience who whispered to the man,

“Don’t look at that, don’t touch that!” 

But, he did not listen. 

Once upon a time there was a conscience who shouted at the man,

“Don’t look at that, don’t touch that!”

But, he did not listen.

Once upon a time, there was no man.

 

Our conscience is a marvelous gift, given by God; only if we use it. Even a dog cowers in humility, when he has done wrong. Listening to our conscience can save us a lifetime of heartache.

 

And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offence toward God, and toward men.” Acts 24:16

 

We can rock along and feel great until we begin to be tried and tested by God. This isn’t for him to see how we will respond because he already knows, but these trials and tests are for us to know and see how we respond. From the sweetest to the unloving, we all go through our customized trials and it is all about relationships. Your testings will usually come by those closest to you. A word that bites can set off alarms of self-defense. A believers walk can seem like we take 5 steps ahead and 3 backwards. A close friend of mine who has passed, once told me;  “Everything we study, we will walk through.” We walk through our lessons! She was so right! If we do not get it the first time, we’ll find ourselves walking through it again until we do. But aren’t you grateful our Father never gives up on us?

 

Let’s pray:

 

Heavenly Father,

 

We thank you for your corrections, for continually reminding us what to drop and what to pick up! Thank you for your whisperings, the thoughts we need to discard and pick back up! Thank you for renewing our minds into the mind of your Son Jesus. Thank you for never giving up on us. Thank you for the gift of conscience like that of a lamp for us to hear, see and know what is of you and what is not. In Jesus we pray. Amen.
