Constant Mitzvah 6 Tools 2


Constant Mitzvah #6

 

(Mitzvah/Concept # 24)

 

“Do not explore after your heart and after your eyes after which you stray.”

(Numbers 15:39)

 

Some commentators believed that the reason the eyes tear is that they are the first step toward many mistakes. We see what we cannot have and desire it. We see what we should not have and our passions are stirred. The eyes bring both great benefit and danger.

 

Each part of the body must face an evaluation of whether it was used constructively or destructively, except the eyes and the ears which cannot be in total control of what they see and hear.
