seems like one who does not know what he wants todo, or who does not know his own mind. All theway through, the body is like one who has no guiding light. The whole body is full of darkness, because the eye is not right.ow, this is the physical side of this metaphor.But it has a spiritual side. What is there in ourmoral or spiritual life that may be taken as the analogue to the facts just described ? It is plain thatthe eye stands for the intentions of the heart. Aman s intentions are to his soul what the eye is tothe body. This statement has very strong support.In one sermon Mr. Wesley says, " The eye is the intention ; what the eye is to the body, the intentionis to the soul/ (Sermons, Vol. L, 256 p.) He musthave said this upon thorough conviction, and as asettled truth with him, for in another sermon hesays/ What the eye is to the body, that the intention is to all the words and actions." (Sermons, Vol.I, 104 p.) Dr. Adam Clark gives us the same idea.He says : " Our blessed Lord uses the sound eye asa metaphor to point out simplicity of intention."If then we are to carry out in the spiritual lifethe figure of the eye used in this text, we must11G THE SIGLE EYE, THE SIMPLE ITETIO.begin with a single intention. The meaning of thepassage is better expressed by the word simple. Itis the same idea conveyed by the Latin simplex, thatis, unmixed, uncompounded, simple, as when achemist speaks of a simple substance, or a musicianof a simple sound.
