Be Careful Eyes What You See



“O, be careful little eyes what you see…For the Father up above is looking down in love…” is an old childhood song which has been around for many generations.[1] Maybe you remember singing it yourself. Not only is this a good reminder for us, but also for we, as adult Christians, to watch over those in our charge, in love. At times that might bring great risk. Risks like: being called names (biased, homophobic, unloving,) to name a few. Yet, hasn’t our Father given us this charge to protect? Is it time for us to take a stand for Truth, and in so doing, bring our world’s focus onto God?


At least three Muslim countries in the Middle East (Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the UAE) are taking action to protect their children from the ravages of the LBGTQ influences of our world. They are standing up to the likes of Disney and Netflix for the “harmful content of their movies.” Content that is targeted at their children. Movies such as” Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous”, Marvel Studios film “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and Disney’s “Lightyear”, are some that are falling under the microscope of content that does not fit with their view of “healthy upbringing of children.”[2]


How about us? Are we really doing all we can to protect our children from these same influences toward sinful life? The Bible has much to say about guarding what our eyes see and the influences it can have on us. “…you will remember all the commands of the Lord, that you may obey them and not prostitute yourselves by going after the lusts of your own hearts and eyes.” (Numbers 15:39) Even more serious are the words of Numbers 33:55, “But if you do not drive out the inhabitants of your land, those that you allow to remain will become barbs in your eyes and thorns in your sides. They will give you trouble in the land where you live,” It is understood that we, in the USA, cannot “drive them out” in the same way as the Israelites were commanded, but what can we do to drive them out of our lives and the lives of our children? Be ready to stand against the evil forces and stand for the protection of our children!


Some suggestions may include: refusing to go to the movies that present the homosexual lifestyle as “normal.” Turn off the TV shows that do the same. Agree that the LGBTQ agenda, along with so much of the media, is “promoting homosexuality by focusing excessively on homosexuals.”[3] In showing love to this lost and dying world, we are not obliged to agree with the world’s views by displaying them before our own eyes or those of our children. Only as we cut these out of our view do we fulfill the, “…covenant with my eyes not to look lustfully…” (Job 31:1 ff) It is troubling that, concerning this aspect of morality, a religion that is contrary to the scriptural fact that Jesus is Lord, is doing more to protect their children than far too many Christian families.


Be ready and willing to lead the way in your life in order to set the path of moral standards in the lives of your children and your church. If we cannot hold to it, then how shall we expect others to avoid these same temptations? Love the sinner, hate the sin.


“The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are good, your whole body will be full of light.” (Matthew 6:22). “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Hebrews 12:2).
