You’ve no doubt heard the expression “bright-eyed and bushy-tailed,” signifying someone who is alert, lively and eager. It’s a state to which we all should aspire. Even Jesus told His disciples that the lamp of the body is the eye (Matthew 6:22). Indeed, the way that you look at things affects your condition. Do you see things through the prism of light, in a way that reflects positive attributes like love, joy, peace, kindness and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23)? Or do you see things darkly, with an eye toward malevolence, pride, envy, lust or any number of other characteristics frowned upon scripturally (Colossians 3:5)?

Jesus’s words give us the popular phrase, “the eyes are the window to the soul.” Keep your eyes on God and His ways and you’ll be in great shape.
