On Sunday I was visiting the Church Bookstore . I had unintentionally placed my briefcase on the floor which almost tripped-up an elderly woman . Almost , not quite . I jokingly said that "The Bible says not to cause your brother to stumble . Since you're not a brother it's no big deal . " ( Said with a smile on my face ) . The woman replied that "The word 'brother' means brothers and sisters ." I said "Well the Bible doesn't say that. " She rejoined with : " Well it ought to ! " And I, answering , said : " AMEN ! "
