MATTHEW 6:23_But if thine eye be evil…
If someone gives you the evil eye, they gave you a mean look – very mean! The mean look suggests something evil towards you – physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual. Maybe all of those.
This verse has a similar meaning. The single eye focuses on a relationship with Jesus more than with the world. Your whole being fills with light. The light is Jesus Himself, the Light of the World.
People with double vision cannot see a single image before their eyes. The image is doubled either horizontally or vertically. Double vision can affect one eye or both. Corrective lenses can help not only for vision, but to keep them safe from injury to self or others.
James 1 (KJV) , “5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. 6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. 7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. 8 A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.”
Seeing double divides vision – one vision is genuine and the other false.
Prayer with lack of faith is double-mindedness.
God of Wisdom, Help me not to see double, but to see Your truth and believe. In the powerful name of Jesus, Amen.
Christ can clear double vision—I want Him to clear mine!
