Unclear conscience

So I always take pains to have a clear conscience toward both God and man. — Acts 24:16

It’s so strange. A person who was normally friendly to me, all of a sudden, last week, when I went to shake his hand at the end of the group meeting, didn’t make eye contact and looked away. It was troubling to me. I made no assumptions then, only noting the unsettling reversal. But today was much the same…the same coldness, the terse responses that bespoke a desire for me to go away. I took pain to search my conscience and see if there was any wrongdoing on my part. I couldn’t find anything. If there is anything I have done wrong, I wish to be reconciled. So much bad can happen when things are left unsaid.

All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation…entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. — 2 Corinthians 5:18-19
