HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div
When we stumble, any number of things might happen. We might simply trip over something and “catch” ourselves so we don’t completely collapse. We might twist a muscle or sprain an ankle trying to avoid a fall. Or we might suffer bruises, bumps or breaks from a hard fall.
- Serious tumbles make us more cautious, maybe even fearful.
- We may lose some confidence and walk more tentatively than necessary.
- We might avoid frightening situations.
These are some of the consequences of spiritual stumbling as well: fear, insecurity and withdrawal from following hard after the Lord.
