How You See is What You Get: Matthew 6:22-23

My grandfather was a Soo Line engineer. He told stories about his long night runs through the woods of Upper Michigan and how the headlight of the big engine pierced the darkness, illuminating standing deer or sometimes cows. On the 101 from Santa Barbara to Ventura, the highways parallels the train tracks and sometimes we overtake a freight or Amtrak. At night their large oscillating light sweeps ahead of them, turning dark into night.
"The eye is the lamp of the body." Jesus said. What kind of headlight do you have? How far does it shine? How much light does it bring to you? How much light do you bring to others?
