A small boy was asked if he understood the difference between the words “conscience” and “conscious.” The boy responded, “Sure. Conscious is when you are aware of something and conscience is when you wish you weren’t.” Solomon wrote of the conscience, “The spirit of a man is the lamp of the Lord, searching the inner depths of his heart.” Dr. Timothy Lin, Ph.D. wrote, “conscience either encourages us to continue or warns us to stop… crowns us with satisfaction…or gives us a … guilty conscience.” The book of Acts gives us the response of people who heard a strong message from the Lord. We read, “now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart and said…what shall we do?” Remember please, that our conscience is not a good guide unless we have truth for our standard.
