A shopper entered a country store and saw a sign that read, “Beware of Dog!” Then he noticed a harmless hound dog sleeping in the middle of the floor.
The man asked the proprietor, “Is that the dog I’m supposed to beware of?”
The worker said, “Yep! That’s him!”
The shopper said, “Your dog doesn’t even move. Why the sign?”
The worker said, “I put the sign up because people kept tripping over my dog.”
We need to watch our step, lest we trip over something we didn’t see. In recovery, it’s often the little stuff we need to watch out for. Scripture warns, “Let us throw off every sin that makes us stumble” (Hebrews 12:1).
Recovery Step: Focus on those seemingly innocent triggers over which you can take a mighty fall.
