What are you looking at? Where's your eye being drawn? What light is filling your eye? Are you looking at the world? If the world has caught your eye, then your thoughts will be dominated by worry, survival, what you eat and drink what you wear, people's opinion of you. The world's great at helping us keep our eye on ourselves. But Jesus says, Your eyes like a lamp that provides light for your whole body. When you're is healthy, your whole body is filled with light. But when your eyes unhealthy, your whole body is filled with darkness. And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is. If the eyes like a lamp for the whole body, then what we're looking at really matters. If our eyes fixed inward, it becomes a black hole. It only leads to a life of self obsession, worry regret, which has a way of filling our whole life and dominating us. Jesus says when your eyes unhealthy, your whole body is filled with darkness. And for religious folks, Jesus has a special warning. He says if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is parading our religious light before others, in an attempt to co OPT God and draw attention rather to ourselves is a deep, deep darkness. But Jesus wants to invite us into a different way, a way that goes beyond worry and self obsession. He allows and enables us to step into a life of trust and rest in God. A God focused life. When we focus our eye on him, we find a father who knows everything about us, even our private motivations, and yet, he still loves us. Our father sees us. And lets us know that we are far more valuable to him than we can dare to imagine. When you know that you are loved that way. You can afford to take your eye off of yourself and actually begin to take a good look at someone else. on others. A God focused life allows us to see, love, honor and serve others. When our eyes and life are fixed on him. His light will fill our whole body. It'll start to shine out in all the untouched areas of our life. He'll shine his gracious, merciful healing light into our past onto our wounds. So what you look at matters. What is your eye looking upon? Keep your eye fixed on him. Let the light of Jesus fill your eye. It'll bring light to your whole body, your imagination, your soul, and it will make you what you really are. Knew. And that's a prayer that I have for my own soul. That's a prayer that I have for my family for my wife, my daughters, my son and that's a prayer that I have for you may be so
