Single Focus - Simplicity

"The eye is the lamp of the body; so them if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in your is darkness, how great is the darkness! No one can serve two masters;...." Matt 6:22 - 24a 

Eyes - clear....unclear and your  vision is obscured by cataracts.....Hmmm....dig a bit deeper....

Clear - Strongs # 573 - haploos - single, healthy, singleness, single focus, simplicity

Jesus teaches here the importance of having an unobstructed, single-focused vision.  I want my gaze squarely on Him - in all of life.  If I live in simplicity (single-focused obedience) my entire life will be characterized by His light...and I'll clearly recognize His light in the midst of the darkness around me. I'll forsake a search for plan B and keep my gaze securely, simply, singly focused on Him in ALL of life's "circumstances".

Simplicity - single-focus because, "No one can serve two masters...."
