The light of the eyes rejoices the heart, And a good report makes the bones healthy (Proverbs 15:30, NKJV). When one allows that which is holy to enter in through the eyes, then the heart is not affected adversely by that which is destructive. The Lord said something on this in Matthew 5:29 when He spoke about the eye causing one to stumble. The focus of the passage is lust associated with adultery, and how one needs to avoid it. When one allows holiness to enter in, then the strength of one’s psychology and emotion holds up strong when the storm comes along. Others interpret this proverb along these lines: “You’re a sight for sore eyes!” In other words, a radiant face can brighten up a discouraging day, and when that radiant face brings some good words, then all the better!
