Re:Verse reading–Matthew 6:19-34 (day three) “If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!” (vs 23) What do you want? What is it that you desire above all other things? What do you focus on, think about (consciously or unconsciously) all day long? Jesus calls this deepest desire “the eye” and says that it gives “light” in all other decisions. Suppose a person is faced with two choices, two opportunities. How does she decide between them? Normally she references her ultimate goal and chooses the most helpful path. In this way, her deepest desire functions as a “light”(wisdom). But sometimes “light” is “darkness”. Sometimes what we want is not what we should want, not what God commands us to want. Just because we desire something doesn’t make it wise or good! Our deepest desires will send us down foolish and dark paths until we surrender what we want to God. Friends, what do you want?
