The Apple of His Eye

April 16, 2016


Read: Zechariah 2 | Bible in a Year: 1 Samuel 30Ė31; Luke 13:23-35


Whoever touches you touches the apple of his eye. Zechariah 2:8

A friendís baby was suffering seizures, so they sped to the hospital in an ambulance, her heart racing as she prayed for her daughter. Her fierce love for this child hit her afresh as she held her tiny fingers, recalling too how much more the Lord loves us and how we are ďthe apple of His eye.Ē

The prophet Zechariah employs this phrase in his word to Godís people who had returned to Jerusalem after their captivity in Babylon. He calls them to repent, to rebuild the temple, and to renew their hearts of love for the true God. For the Lord loves His people greatly; they are the apple of His eye.

The Lord loves His people greatly.

Hebrew scholars suggest this phrase from Zechariah 2 denotes oneís reflection in the pupil of anotherís eye, with the word ďappleĒ emerging because itís a common spherical object. So with eyes being precious and fragile, they need protecting, and thatís how the Lord wants to love and protect His peopleóby holding them close to His heart.

The Lord who dwells in our midst pours out His love on usóeven, amazingly, far more than a loving mother who does all she can for her ailing child. We are the apple of His eye, His beloved.

Father God, You love us so much that You gave us Your only Son to die that we might live. May we receive Your love this day and live in it.

A parentís love for a child reflects our Fatherís love for us
