Jesus said: It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell. We should be willing to let go of our sinful attachments that could lead us to sin and cut us off from God.
In our society today, moral standards seem to have lowered. Because of selfishness and stubbornness, many of God’s commandments have been “modified” to suit our comfort and desires. As a result, our lives have become more chaotic and miserable and unsafe.
It is time that we take effort and courage to obey God’s commandments. Let us ask God for the gift of wisdom to discern His will and the courage to obey. This way, we become instruments in building God’s kingdom on earth.
