“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! Matthew 6:22-23

We were given the gift of sight that is better than most animals who only see in the grey scale. Our eyes see a great many things, some close up, some far away. What we see has an effect on our entire body. If we see something that makes us laugh, our body forgets pain. If we see something sad, our body reacts in a way that competes against the sadness.

When we look upon something that we shouldn’t, our spirit works overtime to get the sight out of our minds. Our eyes are a window to our souls. People can tell a lot just by looking at another’s eyes. If we are in the spirit, our eyes tell of joy and peace even in the midst of sorrow. If we are being tempted, our eyes tell of shying away from seeing the good things and hide from those who we know the temptation would hurt if it were to become a sin.

If your right eye causes you to sin, tear it out and throw it away. For it is better that you lose one of your members than that your whole body be thrown into hell. Matthew 5:29

That seems a little drastic but Jesus said that to make a valid point. Flesh is nothing but mud and clay but the spirit inside lives forever. If we let ourselves be overtaken by the lusts of the flesh (worldly sin), then we are throwing away our chances of living eternally with God. The devil has used the media and politics to distract, misguide, and tempt all of us from the cradle to the grave. Right now so many are dependent on the media for ways of living that they forgot to open their eyes and ears to the people around them that could instruct without the distractions that come along with videos and television shows.  

I will ponder the way that is blameless. Oh when will you come to me? I will walk with integrity of heart within my house; I will not set before my eyes anything that is worthless. I hate the work of those who fall away; it shall not cling to me. A perverse heart shall be far from me; I will know nothing of evil. Psalm 101:2-4

I am reminded of the children’s song that Goes:

O be careful little eyes what you see
O be careful little eyes what you see
For the Father up above
is looking down in love
So, be careful little eyes what you see
O be careful little ears what you hear
O be careful little ears what you hear
For the Father up above
is looking down in love
So, be careful little ears what you hear
O be careful little tongue what you say
O be careful little tongue what you say
For the Father up above
is looking down in love
So, be careful little tongue what you say


The hearing ear and the seeing eye, the Lord has made them both Proverbs 20:12


God is watching, can you see what He is seeing. He is paying attention, do you know what is going on around you. He hears you, do you know what you are saying. We need to be careful and follow Christ’s example on how to live a right life. Blessings to you all

In Christ,

 Rob, Servant of God
