Metaphysical meaning of stumblingblock (mbd)
stumblingblock (Rom. 14:13).
Meta. Stumblingblocks at first sight seem to be in the environment, but a closer discernment reveals that they are primarily in the mind. Then we should not put additional weight into the already existing stumblingblocks by filling them with the thought stuff of condemnation.
Do not judge others, but strive to remove their limitations.
We should beware how we let our zeal to help others interfere with their liberty of choice.
