2 Timothy 2:15
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.
If I do my best, and strive to be transparent in my dealings with others, I can face God with confidence. We don’t ever need to be ashamed when we have tried our hardest and have been honest in doing so. I definitely have an oversized conscience. I am not sure how that happened, because I have been this way since long before I knew much about God. But I feel this verse is not just about knowing right from wrong. It is about making the “right“ choice at the right time. And so, this involves paying attention to the Spirit which lives in us, which will always show us the right way.
Father God, you live within me, showing me the way, the right choice, the kindest and most compassionate way to be. For this I am truly thankful. Amen
