The light of the body is the eye

Jesus walking in different places spreading His word to be known and so that people could also be saved and forgiven of their sins.

The Master at that time was surrounded by a crowd, He begins to speak to people about adultery, giving them to understand that this was not right and that they should take care of such thing.

That is why in the Gospel of Matthew we find several biblical verses where Jesus mentioned these words about adultery and how we can avoid it.

27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:

28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.

Matthew 5:27-28

Today many do not take care of this part, because, by not listening and not reading the Bible, fall into these evils. One of the main methods that the enemy can use for you to fall is to use your weaknesses against you.

When you are weak with something, the enemy takes that very thing to put it before you and make you sin against God.

And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

Matthew 5:29

We should not take the previous verse literally. What the previous verse wants to leave said is that we should separate from us everything that is not pleasing to God, that we avoid having contact with what satan puts before us to make us war. One of the greatest temptations of a man is a woman, because by her attractiveness we begin to look and look until we fall into temptation.

And since we are talking about looking, what organ of the body is responsible for that function? It is the eye, and in the Gospel according to Matthew we find a part related to this theme, which Jesus mentions:

The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.

Matthew 6:22

So, if our eyes are deviated and they are seeing bad things with desires, this will be felt throughout our body. If on the contrary we see good things, our bodies will be full of light and not of any light, but of the divine light, that when we are in darkness, it illuminates us so that we can see what is before us.

But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

Matthew 6:23

Let us take care of all the evil that is around us, because day after day the enemy besieges us to make us sin against God.
