The Eye is a Lamp {Gratitude52 Art Journal}

G52Prompt17 Eyesight

This week’s prompt for the Gratitude52 Art Journal Challenge is “Eyesight.” I chose to illustrate my thankfulness for eyesight by focusing on a Scripture verse about the eye.

"Your eye is a lamp that provides light for your body. When your eye is good, your whole body is filled with light.”   -  Matthew 6:22 (NLT)

Other Bible phrases come to mind, like “Your word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.” I’m also thinking about another level of meaning, reflected in the children’s song: “Be careful little eyes what you see.” Hmmmmmm. We want the “whole body” to be “filled with light,” not darkness. So, the eye is pretty important spiritually, as well as physically, then, isn’t it?!
