Be Careful Little Eyes

“Be careful little eyes what you see.

Be careful little eyes what you see.

For the Father up above is looking down with love,

so be careful little eyes what you see.

Be careful little ears what you hear.

Be careful little ears what you hear.

For the Father up above is looking down with love,

so be careful little ears what you hear.

Be careful little tongue what you say.

Be careful little tongue what you say.

For the Father up above is looking down with love,

so be careful little tongue what you say.”

If you grew up in church, then perhaps you are familiar with this children’s song.  Its intent was to teach a valuable lesson about what we see, hear, and/or say.  We may have sung it as kids, but it is very relevant to us as adults.

Everyday we are bombarded by things we really shouldn’t watch or listen to.  Unfortunately, we have become desensitized to the leading of the Holy Spirit as to what is right and what is wrong according to God.  Christians flock to movies that portray worldly values and purchase books filled with demoralizing content.  You may say to me that those things don’t affect you, but I have to tell you that you are dead wrong.  Just as what we physically put in our bodies affects us, the things we see and hear likewise affect us.  We become discontented with our spouses, our jobs, our bodies, our lives as we participate in these things.  I’m not slamming all secular books and movies.  But you need to be careful what you are watching and reading.

A good measuring stick is Philippians 4:8 which says “Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.”

What are you dwelling on?  Is it true or false?  Is it honorable or dishonorable?  Is it right or wrong?  Is it pure or impure?  Is it lovely or ugly?  God asks us to dwell on things that are true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, of good repute, excellent and worthy of praise.  Let me challenge you to give this a try.  You might just find life a little more joyful.

Lots of love, Sharon
