My Eyes: Not For Vanity

Key Verse

“Turn away mine eyes from beholding vanity;  and quicken thou me in thy way” (Psalm 119:37).

Text — Psalm 119:33-38


The lust for vanity, like the love of money, is the real root of a perverse society. Young persons from mostly Africa and Asia are now victims of modern slavery .They are trafficked across the developed world. A former president of America, Barrack Obama, expressed his worries on this on September 25, 2012 in the following words, “It ought to concern every person, because it is a debasement of our common humanity…it endangers public health and fuels violence and organized crime … I’m talking about the injustice, the outrage, of human trafficking which must be called by its true name – Modern slavery.” A route to this great evil is the eyes. Images or videos on the television, internet, the social media and magazines, fuel the youthful lust for pleasures of the flesh and the get-rich-quick syndrome.

The only way out of the danger of enticement to vanity is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and hard work. Friend, don’t lose your soul for vanity. Be contented with what you have and obey God’s Word.


Don’t lose your soul for vanity


 Lean on Jesus for a better future.

Prayer for today

Remove vanity from my heart, oh Lord.
