It is better to suffer for doing good than for doing evil. For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and He is attentive to their prayers (reference I Peter 3:17, I Peter 3). Our awareness of the eyes of the Lord makes us mindful of His standard and activates our conscience.
“Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight,” I Peter 3:3-4. We should consider this as it pertains to our conscience as well, because it is good decision-making that allows our conscience to be clear.
Let us all consider and acknowledge God in all that we do before we make our decisions, and allow conscious reminders along the way to strengthen our walk and righteous position in Christ. Because as a wife should be to her husband, so should the church be to Christ.
