Collected Sentences

A great deal of sin comes in at the eyes. At these windows Satan throws in those fiery darts which pierce and poison the heart. The eye affects the heart with guilt as well as grief. Let us therefore, with holy Job, make a covenant with our eyes, not to look on that which we are in danger of lusting after, Proverbs 23:31,Mat 5:28. Let the fear of God be always to us for a covering of the eyes, Genesis 20:16.

Matthew Henry
