Proverbs 7:2 Keep my commandments, and live; and my law as the apple of thine eye.
“The Apple of the Eye!” What does that really mean? Well, I went out on the Internet and asked that question and here is what I received back from GoEnglish.com.
The apple of your eye is that person (or thing) that you care for the most. Example: “He sure does love his little girl.” Reply: “She’s the apple of his eye.” Example: “You got me the bracelet I wanted!” Reply: “Yes, I knew it was the apple of your eye.”
The original meaning of the apple of your eye is the pupil, or the round black spot in the middle of the eye. It is as if that person’s reflection can be seen in the pupil (“apple”) of your eye. Example: “Everyone knew they would get married someday. She was always the apple of his eye.”
It makes you feel good to look at the person who is the apple of your eye. From a famous love song: “You are the apple of my eye. That’s why I’ll always be with you.”
Using these definitions, is God’s Word, “the apple of thine eye?” Is it, “What you care for most?” Is your life a reflection of God’s Word? Do you feel good looking into Gods Word? God wants His Word to be the Apple of our Eye.
Today as you read through the verses on the pages of the Holy Bible remember, God is speaking through that page to your heart. He, more than anything, wants to be the “Apple of Thine Eye.”
