Are You Up For Swimming?

By: Alex Slobodyanik


[aw-then-tis-i-tee] – the quality of being genuine, real.

Jesus tells us that we better be serious about our daily conduct. If you live an authentic Christian life, you will do good—not only for yourself, but for those around you as well. Especially for those who have a childlike faith and look up to you as if you were Jesus.

However, if you live a double life and one of these “little ones” sees you being fake, and this causes him to stumble, you better be training to swim with a heavy millstone hung around your neck!

An alternative solution would be to stop being fake. Is there something that you need to change today?

Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world because of its stumbling blocks! For it is inevitable that stumbling blocks come; but woe to that man through whom the stumbling block comes! (Matthew 18:6-7, NASB)
