Matthew 6:22–23 NKJV
“The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!

Main Idea: God desires our focus and attention to be on Him.

Key Question: Where is your focus?

1. Infatuation is your life’s focus. (v. 22-23)

“single eyed”
Matthew 6:22–23 NKJV
“The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
2 Corinthians 11:3 NKJV
But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

Matthew 6:22–23 NKJV
“The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
Ephesians 5:8–16 NKJV
For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them. For it is shameful even to speak of those things which are done by them in secret. But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light. Therefore He says: “Awake, you who sleep, Arise from the dead, And Christ will give you light.” See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
eph 5 8-
Matthew 5:16 NKJV
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

3. Infatuation is your life’s deception. (v. 23)

Matthew 6:23 NKJV
But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
Proverbs 4:19 NKJV
The way of the wicked is like darkness; They do not know what makes them stumble.
Isaiah 44:18 NKJV
They do not know nor understand; For He has shut their eyes, so that they cannot see, And their hearts, so that they cannot understand.
Proverbs 28:22 NKJV
A man with an evil eye hastens after riches, And does not consider that poverty will come upon him.
I got my new glass. The technician said, “It will be great. You will be able to see leaves on trees and peoples eyes.” Hmmm? I thought I could already… Turns out she was right.
