Matthew 5:30 And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.
Hockey Chat: Part of being on a NHL team is meeting up to high standards of play. Those who do not perform up to that level are separated from the major league team and sent away. Part of being a great team is maintaining a great group of players. Those that are not, are gone.
Life Lesson: There are avenues we take that lead us to sin. When we know where the road will lead (bars=drunkenness, late night TV=lewd shows, certain acquaintances=trouble) we need to take a higher road and steer clear of those negative avenues. Fill your life with the positive influences that will build you up instead of those that take you down.
