Kitchen Table Devotions
If your hand or your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it from you; it is better for you to enter life crippled or lame, than to have two hands or two feet and be cast into the eternal fire. Matthew 18:8
Don’t be afraid to deal with the offensive part of your life. Don’t be afraid to look at it, name it and cut it off. That offensive thing is like a thorn or an open wound, and if you don’t deal with it, it’s going to get infected, stink and become offensive to the people around you. Have you thought that maybe the greatest put-off to others is the thing you’ve been putting off yourself? When we get like that are offensive to ourselves and those around us. Now come the excuses for why we don’t like people and don’t like the church. That offense lingers in our minds offending our spirit and undermining our confidence. Call it out and cut it off in the name of Jesus. That offensive thing is tripping us up and bringing us down. Jesus said that there is a better way to live and there is because He made a way to live better, it’s called forgiveness.
