Protect Your Eyes

Matthew 6:22-23 (New International Version)

22"The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. 23But 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!

There is so much pollen out in the air right now. I find my eyes itching and burning more during this season. As much as I love being outdoors I have to make sure I protect my eyes. Not only pollen but when it comes to viruses like the H1N1 flu virus doctors advise people not to touch their eyes or mouth with unwashed hands because the virus can get in through your eyes.

There are contaminants that can get into your eyes without touch or air. You can simply look at the wrong thing for too long and your body can become infected with darkness. Whatever you look at is what gets inside your spirit. Your eyes are the gate to your heart & soul. You have to protect your eyes:

1. 2 Timothy 2:15 (New King James Version)

15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

2. Avoid contaminants like horror movies that deal with the occult & pornographic material latent with lust.

3. Philippians 4:8 (King James Version)

8Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Whatever you look at is what is going to get in you.

Dear God pull the scales off my eyes and open the curtains of my soul to fill me with the light of your Word. Remove the pollutants of sin and help me to see clearly again.

In Jesus Name,
