The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore, when your eye is good, your whole body also is full of light. But when your eye is bad, your body also is full of darkness. (Luke 11:34 NKJV)
Isn’t it amazing how these words of wisdom still ring true today – 2000 + years later. People are people and there are deep truths that will stand the test of time. These truths do not change because of our Author, our Creator. He put his signature in our DNA.
This is a major reason for my attempt at daily devotionals. What are we looking at daily? What do we set our eyes and, therefore, our minds on? The lamp of the body is the eye. When our eye is good and we set our eyes on good things, we are filled with light. When we set our eyes on bad things, whether by choice or not, we are filled with darkness.
It makes me think of stumbling around in the darkness at night, trying to find the kitchen for a drink of water. If I turn on a light, my eyes receive the light which overwhelms the darkness. It’s even hard to adjust to the difference at first. Both light and darkness have an affect on us. Let us set our eyes and minds on good things.
