Zech. 2:8 ...he who touches you touches the apple of His eye. I'm sure you've all heard the saying, "You're the apple of God's eye" What does that actually mean? This verse is referencing the fact that to touch one of God's children is like sticking one's finger directly into the pupil of God's eye. It is a serious matter to come against one of God's children. God considers it like a blasphemous assault against Him. We must consider our actions and our words before we lash out against a brother or sister in Christ. God takes it personally.
