The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!
A person can have 20/20 vision and still have bad eyesight. The eye is the lamp of the body filtering what enters our minds and hearts. If our spiritual eyes are healthy, our whole body—the instruments in which we live our lives—is filled with light. But if our spiritual eyes are coveting wealth and possessions, then our whole person is impacted. If what should be light is in reality, spiritual darkness, “how great is [that] darkness.”
So, the question is…what do you allow your eyes to see?
What do you view on your smartphone?
What do you access on your computer?
What print materials fill your mind?
What programs do you watch?
What grabs your attention when driving down a road?
Where do your eyes gravitate walking in a neighborhood?
The things that fill our thinking, 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?
Talking to God
Father, guard my eyes against things that bring spiritual disease to my mind, heart, and actions. Help me discipline my sight in order to see things from your perspective. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
