The Eyes are the Windows to the Souls

Yesterday, I was reading a book by Eugene Peterson and was struck by a comment he made on eyes. It gave me a new appreciation for that old bromide: The eyes are the windows to the soul.

“Our eyes are remarkable and accurate signs of our inner spiritual health.

They narrow into slits when we hate, envy, and scheme.

They open wide in wonder when we live in adoration and generosity.”

“The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light…” Matthew 6:22
