The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
A person can have 20-20 vision and still have bad eyesight. The eye is the lamp of the body, filtering what enters into our minds and hearts. If our spiritual eyes are healthy, our whole bodies — the instruments in which we live life — are filled with light. However, if our spiritual eyes are coveting wealth and possessions, then our whole person is impacted. If what should be light is really spiritual darkness, “how great is that darkness.”
Now, the question is . . . what do you allow your eyes to see?
What do you view on your smartphone?
What do you see on your computer?
What print material fills your mind?
What programs do you watch?
What grabs your attention when driving down a road?
Where do your eyes gravitate to while walking in a neighborhood?
The things that fill our minds, the things that move our hearts, the things that form our words all enter through the gateway of the eyes. So . . . how is your eyesight . . . your spiritual eyesight?
Father, guard my eyes from things that bring spiritual disease to my mind, heart, and words. Help me discipline my sight in order to see things from Your perspective. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
