Zechariah 2:8 For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me unto the nations which spoiled you: For he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.God loves His people. Here He uses a term of great endearment. He calls them, His people, the apple of His eye. This term means that His people are dear and precious to Him. God loves His people. He makes that clear here in this text. Do you know that He loves you? You are His precious child. He loves you and cares for you. He is watching you. How can you rebel against such love?
