The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness! – Matthew 6:22-23 (NIV)
How do we view our circumstances? Jesus tells us that our perspective is very important. If we are able to look at the situations that life has through the lens of God’s promises, even though the circumstances are tough, we are filled with light. But if we look at our surroundings through the lens of a world without God, we are left with despair and hopelessness. Jesus is telling those who want to follow Him that seeing the world through the lens of Scripture is a discipline that brings great reward.
