Stumbling Block

I have a challenge in my life right now, and more than anything, I want to do the right thing, to do God’s will.  My biggest hope is that we can put forgiveness into action and simply let things go more smoothly in the future.  My biggest fear is that an action I take might become a stumbling block to another person’s faith.  I am far from a saint, but I do my best to live my life so that others can see Christ in me.  I don’t want others to find a fake or phony Christ.

My husband gave me this advice, which I am still pondering:  “If you don’t want to be a stumbling block, get out of the way.  Think about it:  A ladder can lift you up, but in the wrong place it will just bonk you in the face.”

My prayer for the day:  Lord, let me be solid as a rock for you, but never let me become a stumbling block!  Let me be a ladder that lifts others up.  Don’t ever let me bonk someone in the face.

Here’s how it appeared in my Bible.  Spending in the Word is balm for my soul!!!
