Lord, as I do an examination of my conscience at night, do I find in myself sin and having caused someone else to sin?
Have I lead someone into a conversation of gossip?
Have I set examples to others because of my indifference to their needs and sufferings?
Have I worshiped the idol’s of my own desires in front of others, that I taught them selfishness is okay?
Have I paid back evil for evil to others, making them think, that is how we are supposed to live our lives with one another?
Have I failed to be patient with someone, teaching them when we are busy, we are busy. The needs of ourselves should always come first?
Have I practiced anger and agitation towards others? Showing them the love and kindness You taught us, is not what they should be giving?
Am I at times the devil in the Garden of Eden, tempting someone to eat of the fruit of my own sins?
“Lord, in everything I think, say, and do throughout my day, let me always remember You are there with me. Bring to me conviction within my soul, when I have sinned or lead others into it. Help me to always remember I do not only endanger my own soul, but can endanger the soul’s of others as well, by my words and actions.”
“The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will collect out of his kingdom all who cause others to sin and all evildoers.”
God Bless, SR
