How Is Your Vision?

Frank Himmel

Jesus observed that . . .

Some have envious eyes, longing for the material advantages they see others have (Matthew 20:15).

Some have sensual eyes, looking to lust, thereby committing adultery in their hearts (Matthew 5:28-29).

Some have critical eyes, looking for specks in others while ignoring obvious problems in themselves (Matthew 7:3-5).

Some have closed eyes, not wanting to see the truth (Matthew 13:15).

How important is all this? The Lord put it this way:

“The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, 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 that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!” (Matthew 5:22-23).
