“Walk before Me and be blameless.” Genesis 17:1
“Fear God and keep His commandments, for this is man’s all. For God will bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether good or evil.” Ecclesiastes 12:13-14
Many things now accounted indifferent, will, in the day of final investigation, be condemned. Hence the necessity of circumspection, even when there is no apparent danger. We can scarcely consider our ways with too much attention or scrutinize our hearts with too much rigor. Under the vain presumption that certain pursuits and amusements are innocent, thousands advance into the snares of Satan. Conscience, perhaps, interposes with a scruple, until overborne by the suggestion that the measure contemplated, unquestionably agreeable, is also harmless. To this, the heart, already attracted and engaged, yields a willing consent, and thus guilt steals in, and ruin follows.
O Lord, grant that I may have a quick and clear perception of right and wrong, and that I may indignantly revolt from the latter, however pleasing to the flesh, and eagerly prosecute the former, at whatever cost and hazard.
Devotion by Karl Heinrich von Bogatzky (1690—1774)

to give a reason for the Hope that you have (1 Peter 3:15). When you can’t share the gospel with your words, share it by leaving tracts that tell people about God's grace.
When leaving a tract, always be diligent to pray about the short gospel message. Pray that it be found by someone who is in need of Jesus’ saving grace, and pray that the person will have a tender heart and open ears to receive the gift Jesus desires to give them.
By the power of the Holy Spirit, even a small tract can help in turning a broken sinner from darkness to light.
