What is the ‘Bad Eye’ in Matthew 6:23

What does the bad eye refer to in Matthew 20:15? It refers to an eye that cannot see the beauty of grace. It cannot see the brightness of generosity. It cannot see unexpected blessing to others as a precious treasure. It is an eye that is blind to what is truly beautiful and bright and precious and God-like. It is a worldly eye. It sees money and material reward as more to be desired than a beautiful display of free, gracious, God-like generosity.

Jesus Christ is God

The eminent British professor and scholar C. S. Lewis wrote in Mere Christianity: I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: “I’m ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don’t accept His claim to be God.” That is the one thing … Continue reading

Establishing Their Own

The self righteous will never love Jesus Christ but they will listen to sermons about Him if it will get them in heaven and blessing on earth.

Finding God

You stand there thinking about what everyone else is thinking about you. You wonder if they are playing “guess the new person’s transgressions”. So our … Continue reading
