Light can shine into me from the outside, and light can shine out from me to others. And this amazing process can be an intricate cycle.
“Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is full of light.” (Luke 11:34) My eye is the lamp of my being. If my eye is healthy, clear, and whole, it can allow light to pass through and into my soul completely unfiltered and potent. Protecting what shines into my body through my eyes then becomes a top priority.
What I let in will influence me, change me, and impact the light that attempts to shine out through my eyes to the world around me. And I believe that this process is sacred and vitally important.
