Guard your eyes

“I made a covenant with my eyes not to look lustfully at a young woman.”

– Job 1:1

 

I need to take a moment to talk to the gentlemen. Please guys, let’s fight the urge to stare. Look away. Look down. Look anywhere except towards temptation.

 

Satan comes as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14). He uses the fact that women’s bodies and breasts are praised in Scripture to ensnare us.

Speaking for myself, I know I’m getting too comfortable with occasional staring.

Whenever I’m not tethered to Christ and abiding deeply in Him (John 15), I often stare and then minimize or rationalize my behaviour, by conveniently reminding myself only of verses that fit my breast admiration.

I definitely need to practice what I preach. Yes, women’s bodies are wonderful and miraculous life givers. But unless you’re married to her, you have no business gazing at her.

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.”

– Galatians 5:16

“But I say to you that whoever looks at a woman to lust for her has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”

– Matthew 5:28
