If your hand causes you to sin, cut it off…

Today, I saw a Chess game in which one player’s Queen was attacked. She moved away from the attack, only (for the King) to be mated next move. The choice was to save the Queen or be mated. I cannot say whether the player who lost saw the Checkmate. Whatever the case, I wondered how many people lose games, careers, etc while trying to protect something that they think is worthwhile. They do protect this thing- a Queen in Chess, a lover, or whatever, and in the process lose something greater. I just remembered what Jesus said in Mark 9:43.
