Ever wondered how your eyes work?
How do two separate organs concave one image at the same time without confusion? It is not so simple, but let’s say there two wires that pass through behind your eyes (the optic nerve) and carry the information to your brain. But remember also that your brain, just like your eyes, nostrils, arms, legs, kidneys, lungs, etc. are made up of 2 separate “lobes”, or let’s just say two halves. So, it stands to reason that 2 different images hit your 2 eyes, (though you are focusing on one object) but create one single perspective (since your focus is on one object).
At the end of the day, one image is formed, a composite image actually. So, if peradventure, there is a slight problem with your left eye for example, that changes the way your left eye sees things, you’d find out that the final image of what you see would be distorted. If you, however, CHOOSE to close your left eye, the right eye would capture the object, to its best capacity and you would get a near-perfect image because that right eye is intact.
Matt 6:22-23 makes us know that “the light of the body is the eye: if the eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if the eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is the darkness”
See a single eye is constructed with an evil eye, and suffice to say that they are both products of the choices we make.
We can choose to have a “single” eye (i.e. a good perspective to life, a good conscience) and we can choose to have the opposite – an evil eye. The result is obvious- a good perfect image or a distorted one. We don’t need a prophet to tell us the right choice to make.
We, however, need the Holy Spirit to help us to always make the right choice.
A single eye-who can find!!!
