Jesus cautious His followers to avoid even the appearance of scandal. Scandal occurs when my sins tempt others to do the same or to wonder whether the truth is true.

Are my actions worthy of the name Christian? Can others take example from how I live my life? Do I avoid even the appearance of doing what is wrong?

O Holy Spirit, inspire me to good deeds today. Protect me from evil, and the temptation to sin. May I make the Christian life attractive to others.
