Re: Verse reading–Matthew 6:19-34 (day seven) “If your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness.”–v 23.
“As long as you think the problem is ‘out there’, that very thought is the problem.”–Stephen Covey.
Jesus is an astute observer of human behavior and psychology. He made us. He knows how we “tick”, the mistakes we easily make. First on His list is the desire for wrong things, setting our eyes on them.
Just as the physical eye can focus on an object or goal, so the inner eye. We call it ambition or desire. “Whom have I in heaven but Thee, and besides Thee I desire nothing on earth.”–Psalm 73:25.
The problem with people is not what we HAVE. It is what we WANT and until our vision gets clear every decision will be clouded and counterproductive.
I hope you can be in Bible Study and worship this morning. We can talk about it.
