Listening to Your Conscience

Labor to keep alive in your breast that little spark of celestial fire, called conscience. (George Washington, 1st president of the United States)

One of the concerns of people who say that “things aren’t like they used to be,” is an apparent lack of conscience in many people, both private and public. To some it almost seems like the times of the biblical judges when “all the people did whatever seemed right in their own eyes” (Judges 21:25). It’s time for all of us to work on that “little spark … conscience.”

Keep your conscience clear. Then if people speak against you, they will be ashamed when they see what a good life you live . . . (1 Peter 3:16)
