Lepers

Friday, March 23, 2007

Today's daily bread talks about lepers, who can't feel anything about pain owing to nerve defects.

Like physical pain to our bodies, our conscience alerts us to spiritual harm. But habitual and unrepentant sin can numb the conscience (1 Tim. 4:1-3). To keep a clear conscience, we need to respond to the pain of appropriate guilt by confession (1 John 1:9), repentance (Acts 26:20), and restitution to others (Luke 19:8). Paul could say with confidence, “I myself always strive to have a conscience without offense toward God and men” (Acts 24:16). Like him, we should not grow numb to God’s painful reminder of sin but allow it to produce in us godly character. Dennis Fisher
At times, I think we should take note whether our heart has numbed against God. In fact, most of the times we didn't realised it at all. Time for evaluation.
