WHAT’S IN YOUR EYE?
“Lord,” he prayed over me, “take care of Larry. He’s the ‘apple’ of Your eye.”
Although I was semiconscious, the word “apple” echoed in my ear and came back to my mind again and again. What did he mean, “An apple in God’s eye?” Didn’t God have other things to look after that were much more important than an apple?
A few days later the man who prayed this prayer came to visit me. Fortunately, what some thought was a heart attack was an uncomfortable case of indigestion. All was well physically, but, my mind still wondered about the “apple.” So I asked.
“What did you mean when you prayed, ‘He’s the apple of Your eye’? I’m curious about what an apple and I have in common, especially in God’s eye.”
“Well,” he said, clearing his throat, “in Proverbs there is a phrase that says, ‘Guard my teachings as the apple of your eye.’”
After a moment of deep thought, he added, “The apple of your eye actually means ‘the little man in your eye.’ If you gaze or stare intently at someone,” he said, “you can see the reflection of that person in the pupil of your eye. So, it means that whatever someone is staring at must be carefully protected because it is precious in the eye of the beholder.”
“Larry,” he continued, “you are very precious to the Lord and I wanted Him to protect and guard you because it was something I couldn’t do, but He could.”
Prayer: Lord, all of Your children are equally precious to You. We are so grateful that You have no favorites. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
Scripture for Today: Proverbs 7:2 Keep my commands and you will live; guard my teachings as the apple of your eye.
