February 18

Have you ever consider that your actions might cause someone to be left behind? It is a dreadful thought. Unfortunately, we are not perfect; only Jesus bears the responsibility of being perfect. However, we must do our best to represent him, but there are times that our human nature works against us and leaves us feeling ashamed. Confess, and repent, and pray for that person if the Holy Spirit brings to mind your sin against them; if possible, seek forgiveness. There are times you may not know you’ve hurt someone, a harsh word, a misunderstanding, or maybe they are easily offended; whatever the case may be, try your best to make Jesus proud of you. This world is a minefield, with traps of sin around every corner; we must do our best to avoid such mines and walk upright in Jesus. Pray that your every step is pleasing to the LORD, that no one takes offense by your words or actions, and that you don’t become a stumbling block.

So I always take pains to have a clear conscience toward both God and man. Acts 24:16
