Letting go of a priced possession, or an important person is not easy for most people. However, the Bible teaches that there are instances where letting go is the best course of action in order to be happy and mature in the faith.
Sin is one of the things that the Scriptures teach that we let go. Why? It is because allowing sin to dwell in our lives would result in disaster and would give us an option not to follow God. Whether it is an evil act, or association with a group of evil people, we should make sure to let go of these for our own good.
During the life of Jesus Christ, a rich young man asked Him how to inherit eternal life. Our Lord simply answered to give everything he has to the poor, take up his cross, and follow Him. Unfortunately, the young man failed to do this. Other things that we should let go are the obstacles that hinder us from serving God completely.
