When we are doing our devotional service, we shouldn’t be discouraged even if some obstacles come up. Rather a devotee considers this as a part of Lord’s plan. Somehow he wants to engage someone in devotional service or a devotee may consider it due to my carelessness. So there is a lesson to learn, not to be careless in the future and to be more careful and be conscious.
