STONES: THROW, STUMBLE OR CLIMB OVER

This week, I read a common-sense statement by William Andrew Ward about the way we live together in our world: "We can choose to throw stones, to stumble on them, to climb over them, or to build with them." The first three choices (throwing, stumbling and climbing over) are choices of the flesh; the last (building) is the pull of God’s Spirit against the flesh. The choices in life for Christians are filled with a tension between our human desires and the pull of the Spirit of God. We struggle between flesh and spirit.
