So—Jesus says, “The eye is the lamp of the body…” (Matthew 6:22ff). He says, “If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness.” What about how we view ourselves? 

In our world of grading on a curve and passing everyone for showing up, Jesus spoke truth, revealing God’s perspective.  Look at your own life. What kind of fruit do you produce?
