What you watch and give your attention to affects who you are and what you believe.
Flat screens of every shape and size are shaping our minds and our culture.
There is no denying that our eyes are a portal to our inner selves. We must be mindful of what we allow to illuminate our souls.
A wise man once said, “No one lights a lamp and then hides it or puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where its light can be seen by all who enter the house. Your eye is like a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is filled with light. But when it is unhealthy, your body is filled with darkness. Make sure that the light you think you have is not actually darkness. If you are filled with light, with no dark corners, then your whole life will be radiant, as though a floodlight were filling you with light.”
Do you recognize the source of this statement? It never ceases to amaze me how the principles and teachings of Jesus remain relevant for life today.
Watch what you watch! What you watch has a way of permeating every part of your being.
(Inspired by Luke 11:33-36)
