Matthew 6: 22 & 23
The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
How do you see things??
According to Jesus, the difference between a life filled with light or happiness and a life filled with darkness or unhappiness depends on how you answer this question. He taught that if our eye, or the way we see things, is healthy our life can be filled with happiness. But if the way we see things, if our outlook or mindset is messed up, there is no end to how dark our life can be.
If you are one of the millions who have lost big in the stock market it’s so important for you to have the right attitude toward your losses. When we suffer a loss we have two options: we can focus on what we have lost and be depressed, or we can focus on what we still have and be filled with gratitude.
The next thoughts Jesus shared were that we cannot serve two masters. We cannot and we should not try to serve God and money. Is money the driving force of your life? Are you trying to serve those two masters? Are you serving God and money? Is your life filled with light or darkness – with happiness or unhappiness?
