The important lesson Matthew wants us to learn from watching and listening to Jesus in this passage is how to avoid stumbling on account of Jesus. Our passage reveals 5 ways that we can avoid stumbling: · Understand what it means to stumble. · Settle in our heart, mind, soul and body that Jesus is the Messiah. · Hear and see the activity of Jesus in us and around us. · Tell what we have heard and seen to unbelieving and doubting persons. · Align our expectations with reality.
