Kitchen Table Devotions

Matthew 18

Day 7

If your eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out and throw it from you. It is better for you to enter life with one eye, than to have two eyes and be cast into the  fiery hell.

Matthew 18:9

Hurt is better than Hell.  This all seems so drastic but so is hell.  God deals with sin by giving man what man wants.  If we want a future without God, then God will give it to us.  We get to decide our future; it’s in our hands.  Hell is not God’s will for anyone.  So, dealing with sin in our lives is up to us.  Hurt is better than Hell!  And hell isn’t just a destination we go to but a daily reality we bring into our lives.  The first step to healing is humility and the first step to humility is honesty.  Be honest about sin and its struggles.  It’s better to deal with those issues here and now.  It can hurt and we may experience hunger for that lusting thing but hurt is better than hell.  It only hurts in the flesh, not the spirit and if our spirit is well, our skin will be too.  Heaven is so great that one eye can prove better than two for living life with a fixed and freed spirit.
