November 12 – Do Not Be A Stumbling Block To Other Believers
November 12, 2022
Apostle Paul encouraged Christians to stay away from activities that can send mixed messages and mislead other people. Paul used food as an example and said
“…therefore, if food makes my brother stumble, I will never again eat meat, lest I make my brother stumble” (1 Corinthians. 8:13).
Every Christian ought to carefully run his or her spiritual race in a way that will not tempt others into committing a sin against God. It is certain that everyone does not have the same measure of faith. Some have strong faith while others struggle with their beliefs. Also, some young believers model few others that they consider being more spiritual. Those followers can be tempted to sway any direction based on the examples they follow. Therefore, everyone should consider it an obligation to be cautious as he/she practices Christianity. All Christians – both young and old should carefully exercise their liberty in God. Every Christian must ensure to live an exemplary lifestyle that will glorify God since some known and unknown protégés may be following.
Dear God, please make me a good Christian, and let me be a good example for other people to follow. Help me not to be a stumbling block for other people’s grace and salvation. Let me faithfully and carefully serve you so that other people can witness this and glorify your holy name. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
