Loss of conscience

for September 5

A little tampering with conscience is dangerous; it is like the dropping of a stitch, which may unravel all the work. We used to say in our childhood:--

"He who steals a single pin
Will live to steal a bigger thing."

The rhyme was bad, but the doctrine was true. If we violate conscience, even upon the smallest matter, we may come at last to have no conscience at all.

[From the original Spurgeon Birthday Book published by Passmore & Alabaster, London.]
