Leading Astray

"Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Matt 18:6

 

Remember when we were kids, sometimes our moms took a particular dislike to a certain friend.  Perhaps they thought that friend would be a bad influence on us, they might “lead us astray.”  Funny how moms are, because sometimes years later, we can see where that person ended up, and we are so glad we are not there with them.

 

As keen as mom’s discernment might have been, God’s is even greater. For that reason we should be sensitive to the Spirit of the Lord if He gives us discernment about hanging with a certain crowd.  Sin loves company, and if we hang with the sinning crowd, we will be lead astray.  And guess what, Jesus is very protective of His “little ones”, insomuch as if someone leads one of His little ones astray in their walk with the Lord, that person will give an account of that before the Lord!
