Proverbs 4:25

Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.
– Proverbs 4:25

Eyes are used to see. Going in the way of wisdom means seeing the way in the sense that we are thoughtful and deliberate in considering well the end of the way before we begin in it. So we should look right and straight ahead at where we should go. Even considering the uncertainties of life, Solomon concluded that it is better to walk in wisdom, which he spoke of as having eyes in your head as opposed to the fools who stumble in the dark (Ecclesiastes 2:13-14).
