A/' $£| t '(' V "And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void of offense toward God, and toward men. " — Acts: 24:16 The words above are those of the Apostle Paul, appearing before the governor of Jerusalem on charges of causing disturbances in the temple. I'aul knew the importance of the work that had been assigned to him; to preach the message of salvation. He knew that his conscience was free of offense against Cod. How many of us can say the same? Many of us ignore conscience. We make excuses for the things we do which we know we should not do. We turn conscience aside whenever it suits our purpose to do so. We should live each day as if tomorrow brings the hour of judgment. We can, if conscience is always our guide.
