Sermon synopsis: What does this passage mean?
Matt 6:22-23 The eye is the lamp of the body. 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. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
There is disagreement about the meaning of this saying of Jesus. Some options as to what Jesus meant are:
1) Developing good or wrong images in your mind.
2) Being careful what you watch - Jesus is referring to the images we take in visually.
3) Getting our priorities right with regards to money and material possessions.
