August 16 – The Conscience

Three Taco Bell Drive-through customers opened their bag to find $3,600 in cash, not the food they had ordered. The money was in a store bag ready for deposit in the Bank . The three friends thought about keeping the money, but decided they would feel too guilty, so they returned it to a very grateful manager. Yes, there is a voice within each of us that tells us right from wrong. It is called the conscience. When we disregard it promptings, it becomes easier and easier to do wrong. A better choice is to listen to God and His Word for He is the One who gave us our conscience. It was David in one of his Psalms who wrote, “I said I will acknowledge my transgressions to the Lord, and You forgave the guilt of my sin.” Our kind heavenly Father stands ready to forgive each one of us. It is because of His grace. And Paul wrote, “…in the ages to come” God will “… show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.”
