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. 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. 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.
