Dealing with a potential risk
A crotch in an oak tree near our house is rotting. Other dead wood is evident here and there.
This may be due to a severe ice storm that broke limbs all over town. Then too, some ants made their home in this same tree some time ago.
Is the tree endangering the house? Should it be trimmed way back or removed entirely?
A far greater danger!
Is there something in our lives that could jeopardize our eternal welfare—perhaps a sinful habit, a questionable friendship, a rotten attitude?
Is anything worth going to hell for? Jesus said, in essence, “Whatever hinders you, get rid of it now before it destroys you” (Matthew 5:27-30; see 2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1; Hebrews 12:1-2).
How we respond reveals whether or not we really believe Him.
