Don’t Let Your Conscience Be Your Guide
By Rick Warren
“You may think you are on the right road and still end up dead” (Proverbs 14:12 CEV).
Every emotion is temporary, whether it’s good or bad. You can be delighted at Disneyland, but it will not last. You can be elated after winning a game, but it will not last. You can even be exhilarated at your wedding, but eventually you’ll learn that every marriage has its ups and downs. But the same is true for negative feelings. If you’re discouraged, upset, or sad, it will not last. Emotions are not permanent.
Proverbs 14:12 says, “You may think you are on the right road and still end up dead” (CEV).
Have you ever heard a Christian say, “Just let your conscience be your guide”? It’s true that God gave you a conscience to help guide you. But it’s not foolproof. Your conscience can be wrong. Anyone’s conscience can be wrong! The Bible says, “There is a path before each person that seems right, but it ends in death” (Proverbs 14:12 NLT).
You can let your emotions guide or misguide you. Or, you can choose to be led by God’s Word. It will never let you down, and it always ends in life.
