Luke 11:34-36 (NASB)
34“The eye is the lamp of your body; when your eye is clear, your whole body also is full of light; but when it is bad, your body also is full of darkness. 35Then watch out that the light in you is not darkness. 36If therefore your whole body is full of light, with no dark part in it, it will be wholly illumined, as when the lamp illumines you with its rays.”
When the eye is clear we become enlightened.
Too often our eyes are clouded by darkness. Our vision becomes masked by anger, selfish conceit, wrong doing and sin. We begin to see people and situations darkly. We judge unfairly.
With an eye full of darkness, we make false assumptions.
We live a life that is not filled with joy because we do not see the hand of God working in us, our situations, and circumstances.
With a bad eye we look with judgment and not with love. The bad eye sees a multitude of sin. The good eye covers a multitude of sin motivated by love and inspired by the grace of God.
