OH, BE CAREFUL LITTLE EYES WHAT YOU SEE!

Note: This post was originally posted in May 2009, but since it is one of my favorite children's Bible songs and because it's so relevant in our world, I wanted to re-post it.  This is part of a series using the "Oh, Be Careful Little..." song.  I'll be re-posting the other posts, as well.  I hope you enjoy!

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.

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.

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. Luke 11:34

 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! Matthew 6:23

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?

- A PRAYER FROM JESUS -

This prayer is from Jesus that we may here from Him, that He may meet our needs. It only consist of three simple steps.

1) We need to read one scripture. This will focus us in the word that brings everlasting life.

2) Since this prayer is from Jesus we need to direct our prayer to Him personally. Too often Christian focus they're prayer's to G_D the father. Scripture proclaims that Jesus should be the focus of our prayer.

3) The simplest part of this Prayer is to ask Jesus one question. Please, all that is required for this question is to make it simple. Let Jesus Himself finish the question when He gives you that understanding through prayer.



The PRAYER

The scripture that is the focus of this prayer is "ACTS 2:38". It's not necessary to do any study into this scripture. Jesus Himself will bestow the understanding that will resonate in your heart.

The most important part of this prayer is that we need to direct our prayer directly to Jesus. If you normally would say Father in your prayer, change your focus from the Father to Christ Jesus by lifting Jesus name up every time you would normally use Father in your prayer.

Maybe the hardest part of this prayer is the question that we need to ask Jesus. For man as we are, always try to understand the question and may add many additional quires. The simplest question is all that is required.

Simply ask Jesus 'WHY'
