If not, before you know it your so far away..that your lost. Today reflect on your life and think about what there is in it that needs to go. What can you do to become a better person and a closer walk with God? Remember also in each step we make, our children are watching and learning from us. What we do, they will do too most likely someday. Do you want them to live the way you do? To do what you do? Our God is so gracious to bless us with people to help guide us in the right direction such as Paul. The struggles he faced, he shared with us so that we can have help and guidance when we struggle. To know what to do. Also, that Jesus faced so much here on earth so that He can say He understands because He lived it too.
And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world. And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.
1 John 2:15-17
Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.
