A Clear Conscience

For who will hurt you if you become zealots for what is good?  But even if you do suffer for being righteous, you are blessed!  Moreover, don’t fear what they fear or be disturbed, but treat the Messiah as holy, as Lord in your hearts; while remaining always ready to give a reasoned answer to anyone who asks you to explain the hope you have in you — yet with humility and fear, keeping your conscience clear, so that when you are spoken against, those who abuse the good behavior flowing from your union with the Messiah may be put to shame.  ~~ 1 Peter 3: 13-16
