Listen to the Word
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! (Matthew 6:22-23)

Jesus taught that the spiritual health of your body starts with your eyes. You can do unthinkable harm to yourself and to others with your eyes. Your eyes can leer with lust. They can ogle with envy. They can look down your nose in condescension. They can roll with disdain.

But your eyes can also be windows that allow God’s light to shine into your life. Your eyes can see the beauty of God’s creation. They can look for truth. They can notice the needs of hurting people around you.

How will you use your eyes today?

Live the Word
Offer your eyes to God. Ask him to help you to see what he would see if he were in your place.
