“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God” Hebrews 12:2.
REFLECTION Our eyes can tell our story. We can flirt with the eyes, lust, seduce, be intrigued, open ourselves to be bribed and pursue worthless things. We can be wise in our own eyes, be humble, or pure. The eyes reflect our emotions be it joy, sorrow, heaviness, reflection, seriousness, levity or depression. The eye tells us a great deal about our physical well being or its lack. One of the first places a physician looks is in our eyes. The eye is not only a window into our health but also into our very souls. The eye reflects in so many ways our spiritual condition. We can covenant with our eyes not to make it the vehicle of sin. We can avoid feasting them on filthy books and magazines, movies and places of questionable amusements. These sources of evil fuel the imagination only to build walls of separation between our souls and God. The physical eyes are interlocked with the spiritual eyes. Therefore we should allow the spiritual to have the control over the physical. If we do that we would be saved from much sorrow. The Bible speaks of the opening of the eyes in revelation or illumination; of eyes that see the King of Glory; of eyes that see the world as a field to be harvested for the Kingdom; of eyes fixed on the unseen God and of conduct that is right in the eyes of men and of God. What are your eyes saying about you?
PRAYER Lord, help me to use my eyes to glorify you at all times. Amen
