Today's Bible Reading talks about our sinful parts of life and was inspired by discussion today with another member here.

Now, it is not talking about actually cutting off your hand, but that would be easier than cutting off some parts of your life-- the parts you think you can hide, the parts that are sin and control you. Parts that interfere with your spiritual life and lead you not to God and His desires for you, but away and toward your own desires.

 

"If your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better to lose one part of your body than to have your whole body thrown into Hell."

 

Matthew chapter 5, verse 30.

 

The verse above lead me to think about priorities. If something in your life comes before God, either put God first or get rid of that which comes before the One who created you and all good things. You cannot serve two masters, and God Himself admits that He is a jealous God. 

 

Matthew chapter 6, verse 33 says, 

 

"But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness...."

I agree some things have taken away from time with God. For me it would be school and work and at times hanging with friends. I read the word but not enough, I need to fill my spirit and not just be tired all the time to the point I do not want to study. Its good to take it a piece of it at a time and control what we do in moderation.
