While We’re Cutting Things Off

In Matthew 5:29 & 30, Jesus says that if your right hand causes you to sin, then cut it off and throw it away. And if your right eye causes you to sin, then pluck it out, and throw it away, because it’s better to enter into Heaven with one hand or one eye, than to enter into Hell with two hands or two eyes.

So while we’re cutting things off in our lives, let’s include the right ear. For if what we are listening to is causing us to sin or to turn away from the truth, then let’s cut it off and throw it out.

Ironically, Simon Peter cut off the right ear of Malchus who was listening to Caiaphas the high priest who sent him to arrest Jesus. Luke the physician informs us that Jesus then touched Malchus’ ear and healed him. -Luke 22:51
