Be Attentive to Your Conscience
One morning as I was getting ready for school, I thought, “It sure would be nice to have some extra money to buy some things I need.” Suddenly the phone rang, and I heard the voice of a man ask, “Is there somebody there who would like to earn a little extra money?” I quickly responded: “Yes! Me.”
It was as if he had heard my thoughts! Even though I felt a slight hesitation in my spirit, I asked for more information about his “opportunity.” He said, “I can’t explain it over the phone.” This caused the “voice” of my conscience to grow stronger, but so did my curiosity. I reasoned, “How could something that seemed to be God’s provision be wrong?” Pushing aside my cautions, I agreed to meet with him.
