"If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell." ESV
It is our eyes that see the forbidden fruit. It is our hands that reach up to pluck it from the tree. Jesus teaches us to get ride of anything that causes us to be unfaithful to Him, no matter how much we want it in our lives. It is our own senses that seek pleasure to the point that we lose sight of our relationship with the Lord. He expects us to turn our backs on those things we know are a temptation to us.
Heavenly Father, so often we allow our senses to lead us to those places that cause us to act in ways that offend You. Forgive us. Give us discerning and prepared minds to stay away from those things that tempt us to sin. In Jesus' name, Amen.
