Leviticus 19:1-15

How am I a stumbling block in the body of Christ?

The Upper Room Devotional for 10th January 2023

Do not curse the deaf or put a stumbling block in front of the blind. – Leviticus 19:14 (NIV)

Until several people who are visually impaired joined our church, I had never given Leviticus 19:14 much thought.

But when these people joined our fellowship, they suggested ways to make our church more accessible. They helped us realize that while we had never intentionally put an object in a blind person’s path, some of our usual ways could cause difficulties for our members who are visually impaired.

Thankfully, our friends have patiently coached us as we have learned how to assist them while still respecting their independence. One member named Thom told me, “Be my eyes, not my brain.” With this in mind, I learned to describe choices as we move through the buffet line instead of making decisions for him. I now include a description on my social media posts instead of only a picture. And I ask others how they would like to help during church events instead of assuming they can’t participate.

Every member is significant in the body of Christ. God provides guidance to help us learn from one another as we worship and serve God together.

Dear Lord, help us to learn from one another as we join together to serve and worship you. Amen.

For awareness of others’ needs
