Matthew 6:22-23

"The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!"

Welcome to Worthy!

Since Jesus is the light of the world He shines through a person who loves Him and and everyone sees that light in the person's life. If there is no love of Jesus in the person all the world sees is darkness because of the sin.

When I read this I think that it is important to guard the avenues of your soul.  Whatever you let into your body with your eyes will either allow your eyes to be a lamp that lets light in or allows it to be darkened because you let in whatever you wish.  This is especially true when choosing entertainment.  Just my 2 cents.

It tells me to be careful what I let my eyes see. "The light of the body is the eye". The lust of the flesh enters through our eyes.

 

If we allow our eyes to see the darkness of this world, our body will be filled with darkness.

 

But if we guard our eyes against darkness, our body will be filled with light.

 

"For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world." 1John 2:16

Sin corrupts your relationship with the Father. Be careful what your eyes see child of God.

Blessings harris,

      We will see many things on this journey through life but we must not forget the "eyes of our heart" ........we have alot of choices before us,everyday.........& one will do well to focus the eyes of one's heart on the Lord,Godly things,things eternal & lovely,Heavenly things.......

       Remnantrob spoke of "entertainment" & it is especially true to  choose wisely what we watch on TV & other forms of being "entertained"...............if you take in "light"& "Godly" that is what you will reflect & "put out "...............

        God bless you,may the desires of your heart be of the Will of God,may the "eyes" of your understanding see the Wisdom & Understanding of the Holy Spirit..........in Jesus Name

                                                                                                                                           With love,in Christ-Kwik

When Jesus said "good" eyes,He meant eyes that not only see well,but also perceive well.It is not only what we see,but how we perceive what we see that makes a difference between godliness and ungodliness,between light and dark.

Eyes of your understanding of things pertaining to God is good, it is you light.

 

 

Do you see what I mean ?

Does what we view with our eyes bring Glory to God?
