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!
What do you see? I’m not talking about what our physical eyes see because the word ‘eye’ in the verse does not mean physical eyes but it speaks of a deeper connotation of the ‘eye’, meaning perspective or viewpoint.
The verse above mentioned that our ‘eye’ (our perspective) is the lamp that provides the light (the way out) for our ‘body’ (our life). If our eye is good, our body will be filled with light (solutions/ discernment to overcome our trials) but when our eye is bad, our whole ‘body’ will be filled with darkness (no way out and a feeble character for the future)
Our perspective (what we see) determine our choices (what we do) which will determine our future (what we will be).
Now, what do you really see?
