Stumbling

Shoveling off my roof because I live in northern Maine is always a challenge. Having been a paramedic for years, I know old guys fall off of roofs. Some die and some are badly injured. My secret to success in this matter is to always plan my falls. It has happened on occasion, but due to proper planning, it never results in an injury.

The same is true in life. Stumbling is a real possibility and one needs to be ready for it. Does the Bible address this subject? Glad you asked. Jude is the expert.

Jude 1:24 

Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you blameless before the presence of His glory with great joy,

Jude 1:12 

These are hidden reefs at your love feasts, as they feast with you without fear, shepherds feeding themselves; waterless clouds, swept along by winds; fruitless trees in late autumn, twice dead, uprooted;

Have you noticed all the things that could trip you up?  Please be careful out there. Give it some thought.
