Causing a little one to stumble…

Posted on

I heard a wonderful sermon the last Sunday in March by my brother in law. He gave the example of Mark 9:42:  “But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea.”    -Jesus

He related it to our example to our children while they are growing up.  We can cause them to stumble over things we set before them that are wrong.  When we get our priorities all mixed up and confused, our children see it and it can confuse them and cause them to stumble.  Jesus said that “the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these…”   So it must be a serious matter to put things before them that cause them to stumble as they are growing up.
