Jesus said, “Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a great millstone were put around his neck and he were thrown into the sea.” Mk 9:41-50
Strong words. But very meaningful. Jesus truly meant that we are to build people up and not tear them down. The little ones are not just physical children, but children in the faith who do not yet know God. They are the innocent ones who will learn whatever we teach them. We are to be very careful not to teach them the ways of evil for the consequences not only affect them, but us even more severely.
Jesus said, “Keep salt in yourselves and you will have peace with one another.” Ibid
Always preserve our own innocence! Trust in the Lord and He will keep our lives always full of delectable flavor!
