Today's Devotion
"Blessed are those who have a tender conscience, but the stubborn are headed for serious trouble" (Proverbs 28:14).

Shutting down your conscience can have dramatic effects on your emotions, your mind and your physical health.

Let me ask you a kind of personal question:

How's your conscience doing these days? Is it alive and healthy? Do you hear from it often? Or do you see it as a great big joy-killer, does it bug you when you want to do something you know you shouldn't do?

Does your conscience keep you awake at night? Do you remember things you've done later in the day and think, "Oh, man, I shouldn't have acted that way" or "I shouldn't have said that"? Sometimes it's little things that your conscience talks to you about, other times it's big things.

I remember when one of our daughters was laying down to go to bed and not being able to sleep because of something she had done earlier in the day. She was at the grocery store with me and we were looking for some corn chips and she had discovered that someone had opened a bag of them. She took a chip from the already opened bag and ate it. Her conscience wouldn't let her go to sleep that night. I was so glad her conscience was tender and she responded to it just as she should have.

Many years ago a Bible teacher said: "A tender conscience is an inestimable blessing; that is, a conscience not only quick to discern what is evil, but instantly to shun it, as the yield closes itself against the mote." (Pastor Nehemiah Adams, 1806-1878)

Today's ScriptShare
"My God, my God, why have you abandoned me? Why are you so far away when I groan for help? Every day I call to you, my God, but you do not answer. Every night you hear my voice, but I find no relief. Yet you are holy, enthroned on the praises of Israel. Our ancestors trusted in you, and you rescued them. They cried out to you and were saved. They trusted in you and were never disgraced" (Psalm 22:1-5).
The LORD bless you and keep you; 
The LORD make His face shine on you, 
And be gracious to you; 
The LORD lift up His countenance on you, 
And give you peace.
