A lot of us always forget about one of the essential organs of our body, which is the eyes. The eye is the lantern of your body. If your eyes are healthy, your entire body will be full of light. (Matthew 6:22). But if your vision is weak, your whole body will be full of darkness. In other words, your eyes allow you to see and put everything into memory.
