It’s Monday night, and we are continuing in our following of Don’s great study of the Sermon on the Mount. Blessings and enjoy!
Sitting at the Feet of Yeshua
We continue exploring the Sermon on the Mount from Matthew 6. Yeshua now continues with instructions on vision and money.
“The eye is the lamp of the body. So if you have a ‘good eye’ [that is, if you are generous] your whole body will be full of light; but if you and an ‘evil eye’ [if you are stingy] your whole body will be full of darkness. If, then the light in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!” (Matthew 6:22-23)
The idea behind this passage is one of childlike simplicity. The eye is regarded as the window by which the light gets into the whole body. The state of a window decides what light gets into a room. If the window is clear, clean and undistorted, the light will come flooding into the room, and will illuminate every corner of it. If the window is colored or frosted, distorted, dirty, or obscure, the light will be hindered, and the room will not be lit up. Yeshua says that the light, which gets into any man’s heart and soul, depends on the spiritual state of the eye through which it has to pass.
The view we take of people depends on the kind of eye we have. There are certain obvious things, which can blind our eyes and distort our vision……read the rest of the post here: Vision and Money
