Daily Devotion A Covenant with Eyes

Keep thyself pure.
—1 Timothy 5:22
Someone has said, “You cannot help the first look, but the second is sin.” Jesus indicated that you can engage in immorality by a look. The Bible places the “lust of the eye” right along with other major sins. Listen: “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.” Peter spoke of having “eyes full of adultery.” No wonder Job said, “I have made a covenant with my eyes; why then should I think upon a maid?” Your eyes see only what your soul allows them to see.

What’s the difference between love and lust?

Prayer for the day
May my eyes be on You, Lord Jesus, for I need Your purity and love to fill my heart and mind.
