Is Your Eye Single?

Is Your Eye Single?

Are you Single?
I am not single, I am married but my eye is single.

Jesus said: Your eye needs to be single if you want your life to be full of light. He meant that your eye needs to focus on what is right and truth.

I am married. I am not single, but my eye is single. That means that I have a wife and she is the only person that my eye desires. I have daughters, daughters in law, sisters in law, students, friends, Spiritual daughters and sisters. I am a Spiritual father and brother to many women, but my eye is single. I have only one wife. No one else is in that category in my life. No one comes between us. My eye is single. My focus is single.

Human language and life are based on definitions. Terms have meanings. Husband and wife are terms with definitions and meanings.

A husband is a man who has promised and pledged his life and love to one woman. She is his wife for as long as they both shall live.

A wife is a woman who has promised and pledged her life and love to one man. He is her husband for as long as they both shall live.

Wives, submit to your own husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.
Husbands, love your wives and do not be bitter toward them.
Colossians 3:18-19

If a “wife” is not faithful, she ceases to be a wife. Her life is no longer a living definition and illustration of the word, wife.

If a “husband” is not faithful, he ceases to be a husband. His life is no longer a living definition and illustration of the word, husband.

A “wife” who is unfaithful to her husband is no longer a wife. She has destroyed the definition of the word “wife.” She is, by definition, no longer a wife.

A “husband” who is unfaithful to his wife is no longer a husband. He has destroyed the definition of the word “husband.” He is, by definition, no longer a husband.

Disobedience disregards the definitions of the words and concepts. A wife is exhorted to be submitted and faithful to her own husband. If her “husband” is not faithful, he is no longer a husband by definition or by practice and should not be treated as nor given the privileges of a faithful husband.

No woman should tolerate infidelity by her ‘husband.’ She has every right to tell him, “It is either me or the other woman, women, porn, etc. You can have me or them but you cannot have both. You have to decide.”
“For now you do not have me. When you decide and give evidence of faithfulness, I will be available.”

A man may be a Spiritual brother or ‘father’ to many persons, but he can be husband to only one person – that is to his wife who is keeping herself for him alone.

A wife can be sister or mother to many other persons but she can be wife to only one man – that is to her husband who keeps himself only for her.

For the hardness of hearts, Moses tolerated poly relationships. But, from the beginning it was not so. Marriage has a definition along with definite terms. Those terms are husband and wife and children. The definitions of those terms may be challenged but they are not negotiable.

Is your eye single?

The light of the body is the eye:
Therefore when your eye is single, your whole body also is full of light;
But when your eye is evil, your body also is full of darkness.
Take heed therefore that the light which is in you be not darkness.
If your whole body therefore be full of light,
Having no part dark,
The whole body shall be full of light,
As when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light. Luke 11:34-36

This is the Word of God. Is your eye single? Are you focused. On what are you focused? Are you a husband or are you a “husband?” Do you keep yourself only for your wife or are you destroying the definition of the word, husband by having a divided focus?

Do you want your life to be filled with light or are you allowing darkness into your life? This is an easy question with an easy answer. You have to decide. Are you a single minded-man or are you a double-minded man?

Why do men think they can get away with this? We will answer to God for all the deeds of our lives. It is time to think, men, and to make sure that you are a husband to your wife. That is the call of God on our lives. You know what you need to do.
