Monday of the Thirty-Second Week in Ordinary Time ‘c’
To sin is one thing, but to cause another to sin is something really wrong. We are all tempted to sin, evil doesn’t sleep and at times we just give up and give in to temptation. There are no exceptions, we all do wrong things in life. However, we should never invite anyone else to sin. We can’t act in an evil and tempt others to do something wrong, something against God’s will. Today Jesus is warning us: “Things that cause sin will inevitably occur, but woe to the one through whom they occur. It would be better for him if a millstone were put around his neck and he be thrown into the sea than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin.” We should always avoid any occasion to sinful actions. This happens at times and especially when we are sorry and then God forgives us. But we should NEVER encourage anyone else to sin.
