How Much More…

“If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out.” 

How much more a view that casts the Word into doubt? 

How much more a desire to conform with the proud?

How much more a focus that’s built upon a crowd? 

“If your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off,” 

How much more a hobby that casts the Word from the top?

How much more a fist that’s quickly made and slow to stop? 

How much more a friend who causes the kind heart to rot?

Inspired by Matthew 5:29-30, Leviticus 14:43-45

~ Poet of Ephraim
