Devotional With Mr. Jeffrey A. Hale 5.24.18

I remember as kid, I always received most of my new albums from Columbia House in the mail by saving up my allowance. What a joy that was as a kid. I recall receiving Dr. Hooks “Pleasure and Pain” album. I was going to church at the time with my parents and jokingly wondered did Ray Sawyer pluck out his own eye because he seen a Beautiful Woman😂? Yeshua/Jesus said if your eye causes you to stumble, then pluck it out. Some translations do read, tear it out or pluck it out, and throw it away. I’ve never seen even one picture illustrating this teaching. The reason, of course, is that it’s probably too graphic. But that’s exactly the point. He gave us this example, not so we would put it in picture Bibles, greeting cards, or Bible coloring books for children, but so it would be burned into the eyes of our hearts. He said it so that you would take that sin in your life so seriously that no matter what the cost or sacrifice, you would pluck it out and throw it away. Imagine plucking out your own eye because it causes you to stumble😵. In the same way, pluck out that sin that’s causing you to stumble. Pluck that ungodly thing out of your life. Throw it away, be done with it already. Keep your eyes, but as far as that sin is concerned, there’s only one thing to do pluck it out.
Facebook friends, what is it that should have no place in your life? Today, pluck it out.(but not like poor Ray Sawyer) Amen?
