Full of Light – Matt 6:22

“The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light.

Matthew 6:22 (NIV)

How is the eye a lamp to the body? When the eye is focused on worldly things, we see dimly; we don’t see the light and truth of Jesus. Our eyes are like a window. When the window is clean, light comes in and illuminates the room. When our eyes focus on worldly things, the window is dirty; the light is blocked, the room dark and dim.

But when your eye is unhealthy, your whole body is filled with darkness. And if the light you think you have is actually darkness, how deep that darkness is!

Matthew 6:23 (NLV)

When our eyes are good, our bodies are full of light; helping us to perceive what is true and right. Helping us to discern the correct path.
Our eyes are the gateway to our hearts and mind. They allow us to see when people are hurting, needy, or lost. Enabling us to help others and spread the light of Jesus.
When our eyes are open, and we seek His kingdom first, our bodies will be full of light; illuminating the darkness.

How is your sight? Are you seeing things clearly; is your body filled with light?

Prayer; Our Heavenly Father, may our eyes be healthy and fixed on You. May our bodies be full of light and our actions humble and loving. Teach us to perceive what is true and right. Like the Gerbera daisy glows and reflects sunlight, let us glow and reflect Your light. In Jesus’ holy and loving name. Amen

  1. Our eyes can be healthy only if they stay focused on the Lord. If they stay on wrong things then the clarity that comes from the Lord is dulled and hence vision is no more clear. Such a good reminder to be cautious of what we are focusing on. In line with your message, I notice that when I spend less time on my phone etc when I am free, I find that my prayers are better and more focused.
    Thank you Jeanne, your messages always remind me of some wonderful biblical truths or remind me what I need to focus on.

    1. Manu, I agree to be healthy our eyes; need to be fixed on the Lord.
      I need to work on scheduling more time to journal; it helps me to discern and focus.
      It is easy for me to become distracted; it is a conscious effort to be focused on His light and truth.
      It is great to hear from you. Have a wonderful week! 💖💐🌺
