God With Us On-line Reflection for The Third Sunday After Pentecost (from June 13, 2021): https://godwithusonline.org/reflections/the-third-sunday-after-pentecost-ruthenian/

Today’s Gospel is Matthew 6:22-34 and and the reading starts: “22 “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light.” We learn about trust. Just as the light of the body is the eye, the soul also has an eye that enlightens it. Our physical eyes can easily discern light and darkness, but the eye of the soul must be trained to do this, because without training, the eye of the soul will not know and trust light from darkness. And the way you think determines who you are. What you desire and trust is who you are, no matter how much Scripture you know or anything else that you accomplish in life. This is critically important for us to understand, which should include the desire to see and trust God. We are warned that we cannot serve God and man.
