"The Stone which the builders disallowed...in made...a Stone of Stumbling." 1 Peter 2:8
A Corner Stone upon which the whole world was built, upon which the church is built, and a "Stone of Stumbling!" How can that be? To those who willfully reject Him, as did the Jewish nation, and stumble into the abyss, there is weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth. To those who pride themselves upon their education, wealth or position, and refuse to bow at His feet, He is a Stone of Stumbling. How subtle is Satan! How hard is the human heart! How our hearts ache for those who know him not.
Our Lord, Thou art precious to us. Help us to remove the stumbling blocks by living out a life that shall win some souls to Thee. Amen.
