What did Jesus mean when He said the eye is the lamp of the body?


Matthew 6:22

ESV - 22 The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light.

So can one see and not perceive? The 2 cannot be synonymous? OR are they?

What you see is the first Temptation (the lust of the eye). Eve saw the beauty of the fruit. You then are tempted by body desires ( uncontrolled desires, just look at David)' then your pride of lfe works in you (you take your eyes off God and implement self), just look at Lucfer whom wanted to be God. Focus your eyes on Jesus for he is the only Way, the only Truth, and the only Life that you should follow. There is no other way.
