“Keep hold of the deep truths of the faith with a clear conscience…” ~ 1 Timothy 3:9
Through the clear running stream the water gushed over the rocks, dropped into pools and the fishes thrived in it. We could stand on the side and look deep into the deeper parts of the stream. If you take a stone and throw it in only ripples would be formed. Even the bubbles looked transparent. The stream was a delight to us.
However when we took a stick and dug it deep to the bottom of the stream and disturbed the mud beneath, suddenly a cloud of mud would cover the water and make it difficult to see through.
When we have a clear conscience our mind too resembles the clear waters of the spring. We feel fresh and filled with life. Our mind is ready to focus whenever needed, our energy levels are high. The moment something comes and clouds our mind with negative thoughts, old unpleasant memories or unmet desires we lose all our enthusiasm to live even in the present.
We have a choice to live our lives according to godly principles and surrender everything concerning our past, present and future into the Lord’s hands. We can meditate on God’s Word and His truth and give the earthly baggage into His hands. We can trust Him to purge and remove what is unnecessary so we can be free from it and live a good life.
“Dear Jesus, help me keep my mind and conscience clear so I can meditate on Your words and live a fruitful life, Amen.”
