When I was a kid, I had a set of big cardboard blocks that looked like bricks. I built all sorts of cool things out of these blocks, and had hours of fun! Today my sons have the same kind of fun with Legos. They build really cool things for hours on end.
But occasionally, as I’m tip-toeing through the dark in bare feet, I step on a stray Lego. That is—to put it mildly—not so much fun. In fact, it’s almost crippling!
The Apostle Paul said, “Make up your mind not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in your brother’s way.”
None of my interactions with people today will be neutral. I’m either a building block, or I’m a stumbling block.
Paul says it quite simply: Make up your mind to build up, never to trip up.
What are you going to do with this thought?
