Have you ever tried to cut something with a dull blade? It never tends to go well for me. All of my attempts end in lackluster results, frustration, or defeat. I’ve experienced a similar problem when it comes to my conscience. It’s something which is supposed to help me cut through sticky situations. This cut should help me make the correct separation between right and wrong. Last week I discovered it has been failing at this job in one part…
