From Pastor Owen

 

It's amazing how many times the Bible warns us about our eyes, what they see and how it will affect us. Job knew that he couldn't look upon a maid, without it causing him to think about her in a troublesome way. David, the man after God's own heart, the sweet Psalmist of Israel, said in Psalms 101: 3; "I will set no wicked thing before my eyes…" he knew that it would bring temptation to him and cause him to sin. I’m not sure if he wrote this after the look at the house top bather that cost him dearly the rest of his life. Achan looked at the goodly Babylonish garment and hid it in his tent, only to have God expose his sin. What a costly look that was, his wife and children and all that he had was stoned and burned and a great heap of stones was piled upon their bodies and all his possessions. Eve looked at the forbidden fruit, and that look led her to desire it. Regardless what the Lord had warned would happen to her, she was enticed, and as Bro. James so writes," lust when it hath conceived, bringeth forth sin: and sin when it is finished. Bringeth forth death.  The little song the children sing would help everyone if they practiced it; ”Oh be careful little eyes what you see…” or should I say, what you let them see. Eyes must be aimed, focused, and the limit of time it looks at something is determined by the heart's interest. In the list of things that it's been said will help keep you right with God, found in I Thess. 5; "Abstain from all appearance of evil." For sure that is getting more difficult every day with the open nudity and provocative apparel that many are wearing, let alone the media and billboards, newspapers and most places one has to shop. I don't have all the answers on how to keep your eyes from seeing evil but I do know we can resist much of it if we but seek the Lord's help and walk in the Spirit.

Love You all and praying for you.

Pastor Owen
