"O Be Careful, Little Eyes"

Take a moment to listen to Job’s words in Job 31:1:

“I have made a covenant with my eyes; how then could I gaze at a virgin?”

Guys, the odds are overwhelming that at some point today you’ll be presented with the opportunity to “gaze” at a woman to whom you have no rights.   Why not start the day out by following Job’s admirable example of integrity?   Make up your mind right now:

“I will not allow sinful thoughts to fester in my mind as a result of the inappropriate use of my eyes.   I’ve made a covenant, and I plan to stick to it all day long.”

Do that, and at the end of the day, you will not be ashamed.
