“So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall!” ~ 1 Corinthians 10:12 (NIV) ~ LEGEND OF THE FALL Bobby Leach achieved fame and fortune when, at the age of 53, he went over Niagara Falls in a barrel. After recuperating from the injuries sustained in the fall, Bobby toured North America and the UK with the historic barrel in tow, recounting the experience for enthusiastic audiences in circus tents and lecture halls. Leach had been a lifelong circus performer, so daredevil stunts were nothing new to him. Even into his sixties he was attempting crazy things, such as swimming across whirlpool rapids. So how did he die? He slipped on an orange peel.

No kidding. The resulting fall injured his leg — the leg became infected — gangrene set in — amputation was required — but it was too late. He died within a couple of months. Is it strange that the man who could survive Niagara Falls in a barrel couldn’t survive an orange peel?

More often than not — it’s the little things that beat us. It’s because they catch us off guard. When you know you’re going over the falls in a barrel — you’re fully prepared and prayed up. Something as mundane as walking across the room, however, you’re likely to think you’ve got it handled. That’s when we’re likely to slip. And that’s why Paul said... “So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall!” ~ 1 Corinthians 10:12 (NIV) ~ I wonder how that orange peel got to Mr. Leach. Did he see it and think that the mere skin of a fruit couldn’t hurt him? Or was he simply not paying attention? Either way — the mistake proved fatal. Think about the orange peels you encounter throughout the day. A missed devotional. A halfhearted effort at work. Spending without thinking. Carelessness in conversation. Neglecting those most important to you.

GROWING SEMINAR Join this second seminar in FSBCPV’s Life Development Process. 9 AM in the Fellowship Hall Sundays during August

These orange peels are more malicious than they appear. If you’re not careful — they can make you fall. The flip side of the coin is that these little things also have the potential to take you to the next level. Jesus explained it ... “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.” ~ Luke 16:10 (NIV) ~ And he said...

Blessings on your week. My prayer for you is that you pay attention each day to those orange peels in your path — and decide beforehand how you will avoid them.
