Do you remember a cartoon in which an elderly priest is driving in a car with a bumper sticker,”Sin happens.”

Sin does happen; so does repentance. Reconciliation and Grace follow.

Do you find it sobering to hear Jesus says, “Things that cause sin will inevitably occur, but woe to the one through whom they occur”?

We are called to be good examples to others.

But if we are instead a bad example, we may be those of whom Jesus says, “woe to the one.”

Let us avoid sin in goodness and integrity of heart calling for God’s help and guidance.
