We have many sayings about conscience, such as “My conscience is clear”, or “I don’t want that on my conscience.” Conscience is an interesting concept, but what is it? Merriam-Webster defines conscience as “the sense or consciousness of the moral goodness or blameworthiness of one’s own conduct, intentions, or character together with a feeling of obligation to do right or be good.” But that definition, of course, begs the question: “What are the right and the good?”

In very broad philosophical concept, the “right and

“Take your pay and go. I want to give the man who was hired last the same as I gave you. Don't I have the right to do what I want with my own money? Or are you envious because I am generous?” Matthew 20:14-15 (NIV)

As I was driving through the National Cemetery I found myself reading many of the grave markers that were there. I read their names and the dates that they lived, and I wondered what their lives were like. As I was doing this, I noticed something that I had never noticed before.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.” John 3:16-17 (NIV)

My wife and I started a basic fort in the back yard for my oldest son Kyle. It’s nothing more than a PVC frame and a camouflage roof. To look at it, you wouldn’t think much, but when Kyle saw it, his imagination exploded. He saw potential for the greatest fort ever. That vision seems to have consumed him.
