I had just finished our most recent newsletter. Having no internet service in our home, we headed for the Internet Cafe. My husband dropped me off so I could get one of the available computers while he parked the truck. He found a good spot on a little bridge nearby, but there was a sizable step from the bridge down to the sidewalk. Being careful not to fall as he stepped down, he did not see the low hanging sign in front of the cafe.
Pulling up a chair alongside me he grumbled and dabbed at his head with his handkerchief. “I hit my head on their sign.”
“Oh, I am so sorry. Are you okay?” Then I asked, “Is the disk in your pocket?”
A look of bewilderment crossed his face. “Doggone it. I left it in the truck.”
A few minutes later he returned still dabbing at his head. You guessed it. He had hit the sign again. He went to the young lady that managed the cafe. “Your sign out front is too low. I hit my head on it twice!”
Smiling sweetly, she replied, “I know. Everybody hits head on sign.”
Hmmm, now we know why some countries have liability laws. My husband discovered that stumbling physically is painful, but it is not near as serious as stumbling spiritually. Life is full of obstacles that can cause us to stumble. However, God has promised to make our steps firm. In Psalm 37, David encourages those that trust, “...though he stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand.” Psalm 37:24 NIV God cares about his children. Trust Him to keep you from falling!
