 Blessed are Those Who Are Not Offended

Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and tell John the things which ye hear and see . . . And blessed is he, whosoever shall find no occasion of stumbling in me. Matthew 11.4, 6.


John the Baptist is offended at not finding the Lord doing things according to his own wish. Blessed is the man who is not offended at what the Lord has appointed him, because not being content with the will of God is a major cause of falling. John does not doubt the Lord, he is only unhappy with the way God has arranged things for him: this is the reason for his fall. In His reply, the Lord gives some hint to John so as to bring him to the knowledge of his own fault. What the Lord answers is nothing but what John has himself heard and seen before. But He adds one important word: "Blessed is he whosoever shall find no occasion of stumbling in me."
