No Stumbling Blocks Accepted

Posted Sep 30 2008 1:46am

"If one of these little children believes in me, and another
person causes that child to sin, then it will be very bad for
that person. It would be better for that person to have a
millstone tied around his neck and be drowned in the sea."

-- Mark 9:42 (ERV)

KEY THOUGHT:
So often in our passion to preserve the purity of the faith, we begin
to exclude others. While purity in our faith is important, Jesus
reminds us of the other side of the equation: woe to us if we exclude
someone who Jesus sees as belonging or do anything to cause another to
lose faith. New Christians, weak believers, and children are all
precious to God. He doesn't want a single one to lose faith because of
the hard-headedness, hard-heartedness, or arrogance of another
believer.


TODAY'S PRAYER:
God, please help me be more careful in what I say and how I act. I
don't want to discourage a single believer from following you. Help my
life and my actions be an encouragement rather than a discouragement to
your people. In Jesus' name. Amen.
