We must be very careful with our eyes, for they are one of the main windows of the heart.
Many Christians are lost in this world. They are spiritually dead because they began seeing their spiritual leaders (pastor, bishop, etc.) with bad eyes, and their interior became full of darkness.
“But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness.” (Matthew 6:23)
When people start to see their spiritual leader with bad eyes, they are touching the authority of one of God’s representatives on earth. Do you remember what He said to Abraham?
“I will bless those who bless you and I will curse him who curses you…” (Genesis 12:3)
You may ask, “How about when a leader makes a mistake, do we have the right to reprimand him or answer him back?” No, but you should pray for him and report him to the leadership of the Church, and they will take the appropriate action. Your leader is a spiritual authority within the hierarchy of faith.
Scripture gives us examples of people that decided to see their leaders with bad eyes.
“…Why then were you not afraid to speak against My servant Moses? So the anger of the Lord was aroused against them, and He departed. And when the cloud departed from above the tabernacle, suddenly Miriam became leprous, as white as snow. Then Aaron turned towards Miriam, and there she was, a leper.” (Numbers 12:8-10)
Be careful with bad eyes! Do not let the fear of the Lord, which is one of the seven manifestations of the Holy Spirit, to escape from your heart. (Isaiah 11:2)
God bless you!
