Oh, Be Careful Little Eyes What You See!


Today I had the opportunity to speak to women at a Bible Teacher's Workshop. I really enjoy having the opportunity to speak to ladies about God's Word, but I also enjoy getting to go to other classes being held during the event and getting to meet new Christian friends. Click here to find out about the classes I was able to attend that had to do with teaching children's Bible classes.

One of the classes I taught was based upon the Bible class song, "Oh, Be Careful Little Eyes What You See!" There is a Latin phrase, "Coram Deo". Coram Deo means, "Before the face of God."

Everything we do is done before the face of God. Every movie we watch, we watch before the face of God. Every tv show we watch, we watch before the face of God. Every magazine, book, or website we go to.....everything we see, we see before the face of God. God cares what we see.

Luke 11:34 Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are good, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are bad, your body also is full of darkness.

Matthew 6:23 But if your eyes are bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!


In Matthew 5:29, Jesus says if your eye causes you to sin, gouge it out. Would you be willing to get rid of your computer if it were causing you to sin? Would you be willing to give up your favorite tv show if you realized it was sinful?

Everything you see, you see before the face of God. Will this change what you see?
