In the wake of all that is holy, I have grown impatient with the holiness’s obstacles. Sure, you can find God in any thing…any situation. But there are also things that distract us from God and they need to be removed. I’m pretty sure that was the meaning behind Jesus’ “pluck out your eye” talk. Truth is, plucking out the unholy is not as easy as Jesus puts it (though he is talking about plucking out an eye, so maybe he’s not insinuating it to be easy at all).
Easy or not, the whole pruning process takes patience. Patient with the unholy? Yes. Because, as my friend revealed to me today, God is patient with me.
