Apple of His Eye

The Lord is gracious and kind to us. He has drawn us close to Himself as a good father draws his dearly beloved children to himself. This is why we are seated at His Table.
         The eye is very sensitive. All men naturally protect their eyes. God does that for us. We are His focus, the center of His interest, even of His self-interest. To protect His people is to protect Himself as we are the body of Christ.
        Every mother and father knows that when you touch their children you touch them. Thus is God’s attitude towards His children. He is intimately acquainted with His children and holds them close to His heart. God’s people are the apple of His eye. He desires that we know and understand this truth and so put our utmost and explicit trust in Him as our Father.
