3 Nephi 13:22-23

"The light of the body is the eye; if, therefore, thine eye be single, they whole body shall be full of light.
But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness.  If, therefore, the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!"
3 Nephi 13:22-23

This is interesting to me.  I don't know if I completely understand it, but I was thinking about it today and thought it would be a good message.  It seems to me that you can interpret it to mean that if your outlook is full of light, you are going to see truth and light in whatever you look at.  You will see the good in people, and you will find the good in life... and eventually you will be filled with good yourself, because that is what you look for and see all around you.  If you look for evil though, you will definitely find it, and we have a tendency to become what we are thinking about and looking for.  Today, let's look for the light and truth in everything around us, and we'll find it in ourselves.
