Good evening to everyone.
I hope you enjoyed the video and reading this week.
What do you think the stumbling block and snare is that is spoken of in vs. 9.
Also, let me know as you join the blog.

Thanks,

Referring back to Psalm 69:22-23, the footnote in my Bible says this is referring to fellowship.

Sandy,
Thanks for following up on that foot note. I am not making the connections. Would you explain that to me in a little more detail?

This is only a guess on my part and is based on what Eleni [in Greece] calls her "table fellowhsip' which is eating a meal and fellowshiping with other people which would hopefully lead them to Christ. In this passage, it would seem that the fellowshiping would have a bad outcome rather than a good one.

So, the stumbling block, snare/trap mentioned might be when someone does not put God's Will first, but decides to do what they want to do, in spite of God's teaching. Might this affect their fellowship?

That would seem to go along with verse 10 if one does not take the "cannot see" part literally; but as not being able to see what the right thing to do is. This would definitely affect their fellowship with God.

I think your right. Usually the biggest thing that comes between our relationship with God is when we abandon our desire to follow after Him, and decide to follow our on desires or wants.

Not sure why David wants "their backs to be bent forever" unless that is referring back to retribution or punishment for disobedience.

In I John 1:7 we are taught that if we walk in the light as He is in the light then we are in fellowship.
Maybe that is the connection we are looking for with fellowship.

Thats a good point. I guess David was passionate about following after the Lord. And anyone who opposes God's word was perceived by him(David) to be an enemy.
