“Be Careful Little Eyes What You See!”

My Bible reading today during “Coffee with the Lord” included Luke 11:33-36.  In that passage Jesus is quoted, emphasizing the importance of the “eye” and the “light” the eye brings to the entire person.  His words emphasize the importance of what the “eye” lets into our inner person – either bringing “light” or “darkness.”  Two things are especially emphasized… 1) If you have “light” within – let it shine…don’t hide it!  And 2) Guard – be careful – about what you let into your inner self! 

Here it is, right out of the Bible, in His words:  “No one, after lightening a lamp puts it in a cellar or under a basket, but on a stand, so that those who enter may see the light!  Your eye is the lamp of your body.  When your eye is healthy, your whole body is full of light, but when it is bad, your body is full of darkness.  Therefore be careful lest the light in you be darkness.” 

While I was reading these words, a little children’s song I used to sing as a child in “Children’s Church” came to mind… But it’s message is appropriate for adult followers of Jesus as well! 

“O be careful little eyes what you see 
O be careful little eyes what you see 
For the Father up above 
Is looking down in love 
So, be careful little eyes what you see 

“O be careful little ears what you hear… 

“O be careful little tongue what you say… 

“O be careful little hands what you do… 

“O be careful little feet where you go… 

“O be careful little heart whom you trust… 

“O be careful little mind what you think…” 


I don’t know about you, but I intend to be careful about what I let within my mind and heart… LIGHT!  And I want my “light” to shine brightly – I don’t want to hide it!
