Daily Light – August 26, 2017

Today’s Daily Light:
 
The Lamp Of Our Body
Luke 11:33-36   Jesus said   “No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl.  Instead he puts it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light.  Your eye is the lamp of your body.  When your eyes are good, your whole body also is full of light.  But when they are bad, you body also is full of darkness.  Se to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness.  Therefore, if your whole body is full of light, and no part of it dark, it will be completely lighted, as when the light of a lamp shines on you.’
And…as I also used in yesterday’s thought….a little song from childhood…I use another verse from a child’s song today…. “oh be careful little eyes what you see…oh be careful little eyes what you see…” 
Father…I know that the things that we want come from the things that we see or have seen…we build the library of ideas and memories in our mind from what we see.   We think about what we see or have seen.   Now that we know the eyes are the doorway to our library…to the things that feed our hearts desire…  help us to make sure we spend time with you …in your word…in your presence…because you are light and good and love and pure and we want You to be our heart’s desire.  I know that the darkness gives its own illusion of light and seeks to confuse our eyes… but your ‘word’ and your Spirit inside us tells us the truth and shines the light of truth.  So, Father, help us not to fall for the power of the illusion…for it is powerful and deceptive and over time can diminish our light.   We want to be bright lights for You dear Father…we do…with all our hearts…so give us desire and ability to ‘seek’ light for our lamp ‘so that’ the light inside us stays bright and does not grow dim and dark ‘so that’ we can be light to others.   Amen
