“We put no stumbling block in anyone’s path, so that our ministry will not be discredited.” 2 Corinthians 6:3
Does your everyday living provide an effective witness for Christ? Do individuals outside your church know what you stand for and what you truly believe in your heart? It’s pretty easy to fool folk at Church on Sunday for however long you are in service. Once a week at bible study we can appear to be deep and pious. However, the question is what about the rest of the week? How do folk view you outside your inner-circle? Most of us have an outward appearance of being saved and living a Godly life.
The issues arise when we are in our comfort zones. When we are at work are we laughing at dirty jokes? Are we participants in idle gossip? How is your work ethic?
I have learned that more people watch what I do than listen to what I say. Your behaviors and attitudes are constantly on display. Your wife has a front row seat to who you truly are and what you truly believe. Your children get to see first hand if your life style mirrors your walk. Are you placing a stumbling block in the path of those who see you daily? Are you discrediting your ministry through your daily actions and attitudes? Is your life an effective witness for Christ?
Keep Pushing The Stone!
