Our Current Sermon Series
In preparation for next Sunday read Matthew 6:19-24.
The eye that Jesus speaks of in this passage is more than the complex mass of tissue and nerve fibers that enables us to see objects. The eye of the body is the marriage of the physical senses to our emotions. It is the thing that perceives the world around us that shapes the desires of our heart. So we can not only see things, we can discern things. We can make judgments about the quality and goodness of things whether they are ordinary like food or spiritual like things we think are worthy to worship.
