04/14/19 – Luke 16:19-17:10; Psalm 83:1-18; Proverbs 13:4
As we read through scripture we see Jesus offer many instructions and “words of warning” to His followers. And today we see a very personal warning for each of us:
Luke 17: 1 Jesus said to his disciples: “Things that cause people to stumble are bound to come, but woe to anyone through whom they come. 2 It would be better for them to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around their neck than to cause one of these little ones to stumble. 3 So watch yourselves.
This is a very direct instruction. We must examine our actions with the perspective of those around us to ensure that what we say, teach and “do” are within God’s will.
