“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Mark 9:43-47

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“…if your hand makes you lose your faith, cut it off!

It is better for you to enter life without a hand

than to keep both hands and go off to hell,

to the fire that never goes out.

.

And if your foot makes you lose your faith, cut it off!

It is better for you to enter life without a foot

than to keep both feet and be thrown into hell.

.

And if your eye makes you lose your faith, take it out!

It is better for you to enter the Kingdom of God with only one eye

than to keep both eyes and be thrown into hell.

.

– Mark 9:43-47 (GNT)

REFLECTION…

.

These references to hands, feet and eyes,

should not only be taken literally.

.

Jesus words also mean

that we should cut off contact with people who are persistent in evil

and who are ever-ready to entice others to evil behaviour

and to erroneous practice and beliefs.

.

We should distance ourselves from such persons

– who could be friends, colleagues, or even family members –

because our primary objective should be to enter God’s Kingdom

rather than accompany those who we allow to mislead us…to perdition.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Nothing…and no one…compares to Your Kingdom, O Lord.

You are all I want and need!
