God gives every person a conscience. Our conscience tells us when we are doing right things or wrong things. If we are doing wrong things, our conscience is our enemy.
Many people in the world today don’t seem to have a conscience. They just do whatever they want to do. These people don’t care if they hurt others and disobey God. They have done wrong things for so long that they don’t even pay attention to their conscience any more.
In our Bible Reading, Paul gave instructions to Timothy. Paul wanted Timothy to continue to follow Jesus and tell others about Him. Paul said he wanted Timothy to “fight the good fight of faith” (verse 18b). Then Paul says, “Continue to have faith and do what you know is right” (verse 19a). I am sure that Timothy’s conscience helped him know the difference between right and wrong.
God gave you a conscience to help you obey him. Pay attention to your conscience and do what is right.
