Is a very precious gift, and a key factor in the disciple’s decision making process.
Atleast three ways you should be interacting with your conscience:
Short term – you obey it. You keep your conscience clean, by not going against it. A clean conscience doesn’t mean you’re definitely in the right, but if you’ve crossed your conscience you’ve done something wrong.
Long term – you mould it. You educate it, and bring it into increasing conformity to the teachings and practice of Jesus. Like a muscle, you strengthen and refine it through practice and training.
Always – you protect it. Whatever you do, don’t sear it. Don’t trample over it. Don’t defile it.
Today, and everyday, conscience is a gift to you.
