It's human nature to close your eyes when you don't want to watch what's about to happen. The problem may be keeping your eyes open when they should be closed. This week, two of my friends got in trouble by doing things they might not have done had they not seen something. It wasn't just looking that got them in trouble but gazing on it and allowing their mind to contemplate wrong things.
It's called lascivious when you're inclined to lustfulness, but that doesn't happen unless you are concupiscent which is having a sexual desire stronger than your spiritual desire. Job made a vow with his eyes (Job 31:1) to avoid temptation, but doing such a thing requires loving God more than yourself. And that may be a universal problem for most men.
You, Lord, are the answer to every question I have yet to ask.
