Be Careful Little Eyes What You See

By Dean P



In the fast-paced and ever-evolving world we live in, it's crucial to be mindful of the things that we choose to watch, hear, and surround ourselves with. The song 2007 “Slow Fade” by Casting Crowns always has served as a reminder to me.


"Be careful little eyes what you see" - is the line that rings most true with me. These words urge us to be mindful of the images and stimuli we expose ourselves to, as they can have a profound impact on our thoughts and shape our paths we walk both early and later on in life. How true that the second glance is the thing that ties our hands, the consequences of our actions even with little eyes is lasting, and binding.


"It's a slow fade, when you give yourself away" - The transition from absolute right and wrong to shades of gray can be subtle, but its effects are significant. A cautionary tale goes forth here, reminding us that the choices we make today can have long-lasting consequences that may ultimately lead us astray.


"The journey from your mind to your hands is shorter than you're thinking" -


This line reminds me that our thoughts can quickly manifest into actions, and we must be cautious about the choices we make. we have to be vigilant against overconfidence, reminding us that even those who think they stand firm may find themselves sinking.


Daddies never crumble in a day

Families never crumble in a day”


As a Husband and Father this line strikes at me with a passion I can barely form into words. So, I won’t, I’ll leave it there if your a dad or a husband, I likely don’t need to anyway.


Let this article and the song be a reminder of the all too importance of vigilance in our daily lives. That we should be mindful of what we, and our kids see and hear, as these influences shape our thoughts, decisions, and ultimately, our character. By being aware of the gradual nature of compromise and the potential consequences of our actions, we can strive to live with integrity and make choices that align with our proclaimed values.


So, Let us remember to be careful little eyes, little ears, and little lips, for the Father above is looking down in love, guiding us towards a life of purpose and righteousness.



Slow Fade by Casting Crowns


Be careful little eyes what you see

It's the second glance that ties your hands

As darkness pulls the strings


Be careful little feet where you go

For it's the little feet behind you

That are sure to follow


It's a slow fade

When you give yourself away

It's a slow fade


When black and white have turned to grey

And thoughts invade, choices made

A price will be paid

When you give yourself away


People never crumble in a day

It's a slow fade


It's a slow fade

Be careful little ears what you hear

When flattery leads to compromise

The end is always near


Be careful little lips what you say

For empty words and promises

Lead broken hearts astray


It's a slow fade

When you give yourself away

It's a slow fade

When black and white have turned to grey


And thoughts invade, choices made

A price will be paid


When you give yourself away

People never crumble in a day


The journey from your mind to your hands

Is shorter than you're thinking


Be careful if you think you stand

You just might be sinking


And it's a slow fade

When you give yourself away

It's a slow fade

When black and white have turned to grey


And thoughts invade, choices made

A price will be paid


When you give yourself away

People never crumble in a day

Daddies never crumble in a day

Families never crumble in a day


Oh, be careful little eyes what you see

Oh, be careful little eyes what you see


For the Father up above is looking down in love


Oh, be careful little eyes what you see
