The term “apple of my eye” is used many times throughout the Bible. The English word for “apple” in Hebrew is “little man”, meaning the reflection we see when looking into another’s eyes. It wasn’t until later that the phrase was used to describe something precious. Yet precious is just how God sees us, and those who abide in Him are indeed the apples of His eyes. Because God delights in His people who walk with Him in loving obedience. We are His treasures, and He cares about every detail of our lives. And just as a mama bird shelters her young under her wings, God is our protection and refuge from the storms of life.
