June 13

Today is…

a fine day to see things in a good light.

“The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light.”  Matthew 6:22 NIV

We must see with the eyes God gave us, not the ones we have grown accustomed to. The eyes that God gave us see the way He wants us to see in ways that will light us from within.

It is easy to cloud our vision and dim the light by seeing temptation as something to welcome rather then something to resist. We can block ourselves from seeing things the correct way by allowing ourselves to become excited or aroused by the immorality that pervades our lives on a daily basis.

God wants us to see things that are broken and work to fix them. He wants us to see pain and work to ease it. The eyes God gave us should also see all of the beauty that abounds and point that beauty out to others so they may enjoy it and become closer to God as a result.

God knows better than any of us that there are many things to see in this world that can weaken our resolve to do the right things. It is for that reason we can pray directly to Him for strength to fight the evil things we see before us.

The miracles of life, the beauty of the sky and the earth, the wonders of the ocean – all of these things are gifts from God to be enjoyed with the eyes that He gave us.

He wants us to see the right path when the landscape before us is littered with sin, temptation, sexual immorality and other forms of wrong doing.

God gave us eyes to see the things that are wrong so that we can work to fix them. He gave us Jesus Christ to help us see the way to do the right things and to help us avoid temptation.

Let the eyes God gave us light up our entire being by seeing things the way He wants us to.
