STUMBLING BLOCKS

June 5, 2014

Thursday

 

Revelation 2:14

 

But I have a few things against you, because you have there some who hold the teaching of Balaam, who kept teaching Balak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols and to commit acts of immorality.

 

EXAMPLE

 

The German philosopher Immanuel Kant said this, “Two things fill the mind with ever increasing wonder and awe–the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me.”

– Unknown

 

LESSON

 

When the prosperous no longer recognize the source of their prosperity, they become ungrateful. And their ingratitude eventually evolves into greed. By eliminating God from our national conversation, we eliminate our ability to publicly recognize the source of our prosperity. This arrogance will ultimately eat away at our national conscience; our national sense of ought and ought not?

An important part of the Christian life is getting along with the brethren. Jesus prayed for unity among believers. Paul condemned division among Christians. Jesus died to make Jew and Gentile one new man and one body.

 

Memory Verse: 1 John 2:10
