Jesus taught that what we see from the outside affects how we are on the inside. “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness” (Matthew 6:22-23). Its important to guard what comes into our heart because everything we do flows from it (Proverbs 4:23). As Boris says “We only have one heart.”
