We humans have a hope that life will in some sense be easy. We like things to go our way. We expect real life challenges to be solved like an hour-long television program, with all the stumbling blocks neatly taken out of the picture.
Jesus had a different word. He said to His disciples, "It is inevitable that stumbling blocks come, but woe to him through whom they come!” Luke 17:1
Inevitable! Stumbling blocks cannot be avoided or evaded.
As a parent there are two facets to teach our children:
1) How to deal with stumbling blocks;
2) How to avoid being a stumbling block to someone else.
What stumbling blocks have you encountered?
