Grandmother was shocked

"Do not be proud of the fact that your grandmother was shocked at something which you are accustomed to seeing or hearing without being shocked…It may be that your grandmother was an extremely lively and vital animal and that you are a paralytic."  -  G.K. Chesterton


When I was a boy in school I heard often about the possibility of searing my conscience.   When I was a kid I thought that was silly, after all, I was free in Christ and could do anythnig I wanted to do.  I was wrong.

Matt, I'd never seen this quote from G.K.C. before, and now that I am a grandmother I think I ought to make use of it. ;-)

Like! A clear concience is not necessarily a good concience, a good concience can still accuse you.
