Daily Devotional for Tuesday May 10, 2022

Sin makes you stupid! and, Being a stepping stone or a stumbling block!


(Romans 14:13)

***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord, I come to You asking for Your blessings today, and that You make me a blessing today. Thank You for Your love, grace, provision, and blessings. May I never take Your goodness for granted. Let me share that love and grace with all who I am with today and be a light for You. In the name of Jesus I pray...AMEN!

***THE DAILY LIVEPRAYER TV NUGGET: Sin makes you stupid and causes you to do stupid things! A byproduct of sin is how stupid it makes the person sinning. If you think back on the sins of your life, you know this to be true. For those who are trying to protect a woman’s non-existent right to kill a baby, for an entire political party fighting for infanticide, look at how foolish and stupid they are. Again, you have an entire political party along with most of the corporate media fighting to KILL INNOCENT BABIES! Think about that for a moment. THEY ARE MAKING ARGUMENTS TO BE ABLE TO KILL INNOCENT BABIES AT ANY PLACE, AT ANY TIME, FOR ANY REASON! In making this sick argument, Michigan AG Dana Nessel said politicians don’t have any business in doctor’s offices. This is the AG of the same state who enacted some of the most tyrannical lockdown policies in the nation during the pandemic, putting politicians in doctor’s offices! For years now you have been told men can have a period, get pregnant, and have babies. If you rejected this ridiculous thought you would be censored or even kicked off social media platforms and publicly shamed. However, in all of the uproar over abortion in the past week, there is been ZERO talk of the rights of men, only the rights of women since of course ONLY WOMEN CAN GET PREGNANT AND GIVE BIRTH TO A BABY! This is a good teaching moment since stupidity attaches to all sin, including our personal sins. I say often that satan is the great justifier. Remember that the next time you are contemplating falling into some sort of sin. IT WILL MAKE YOU STUPID AND LOOK FOOLISH!!!

One of the ways of gauging your spiritual maturity is when you start analyzing your actions in relation to how others view what you do and say. There are many ways to accomplish the same thing, and it becomes very important for us to recognize that others are watching what we do and listening to what we say. There is no greater testimony, no greater way to witness, than the way you live your life before others. It is your most powerful way of expressing the Christ that lives in you.

Becoming a Christian entitles us to many great and wonderful benefits. It also comes with responsibility. As a Christian, you are now responsible to live a life before others that is an example of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. What you say, how you live before others can either be a stepping stone in your relationship with Christ, or a stumbling block.

A few weeks ago I spoke about drinking. In the Bible, there is no verse or passage that says drinking is a sin. There are many scriptures that tell us drinking in excess is a sin. Anything in excess, no matter how good, can become sin. Using drinking as an example, one reason I advocate abstinence is that drinking may not be a sin, but it could be a stumbling block for someone else.

That glass of wine with dinner at a restaurant is not a sinful act. However, someone at the next table may be prone to excessive drinking, know you are a Christian, and justify their excessive drinking on the fact that you drink. We know that is insane logic and makes no sense. However, that is exactly what the Bible is talking about when it speaks of being a stumbling block.

We need to be aware of the things we say and do, because others will be watching and listening, and we want them to see the Christ in us. Again, everyone is responsible for their own choices and actions, but the Word clearly tells us we have a responsibility to be a stepping stone for others, not a stumbling block.

Now this in no way means we should ever compromise the Word, or candy-coat the truth so others will not be offended. The Bible speaks of the Gospel being offensive to many because it is absolute truth that many will never accept. This does mean though, that we need to be aware of the people around us, and without compromising, try to help them further their walk or quest to find a relationship with Christ.

That is what being a stepping stone is all about. I pray today, that you will become more aware of your daily conversation and activities, especially in regard to how others see and hear you. Be aware that they watch and listen, and let them never doubt that Christ dwells within you. How you live and the things you say will either be a stepping stone or a stumbling block to those you come in contact with each day.

It is no accident you work where you work, go to school where you go to school, shop where you shop, play where you play, or live where you live. God has divinely placed you where you are to be a light, an example, a stepping stone in the lives of those you come in contact with each day. Take this responsibility very seriously, and let others see and hear the Christ that lives within you.

I love you and care for you deeply. I will be praying for you today. Be richly blessed as you go forth to be the stepping stone the Lord has raised you up to be!!!

In His love and service,

Your friend and brother in Christ,

Bill Keller
