OPEN YOUR EYES By Michele "Your eyes are windows into you From: Justin Thomas Gregory 26 Feb 2008 (12:00)
"Your eyes are windows into your body. If you open your eyes wide in wonder and belief, your body fills up with light. If you live squinty-eyed in greed and distrust, your body is a dank cellar. If you pull the blinds on your windows, what a dark life you will have!" Matthew 6:22 (MSG)

Have you ever wanted to lock yourself in your room, close the blinds and not come out for a few days? Have you ever wished you had blinders on your face so that you didn't have to see those around you? Have you ever stopped to watch those around you, but the noticed something about them you hadn’t ever noticed before?

When we shut ourselves off from other people, we miss out on what’s going on in their lives. In turn, they miss out on what is going on in ours! What if that person has a need you can easily meet? What if you are the only one who can meet that need? Think about this - what if the person whose need you can meet is your enemy? Would you still do it? This verse says that living with the blinders on is greedy and will make your life dark. Who wants that?

Ask God to open your eyes to those around you. Ask Him to show you what need you’re able to meet in someone’s life. When you open your eyes to the needs of those around you, even your enemy, you’ll be living in God’s light!
