So this is beautiful to me so I thought I would share it with you. I was talking with a friend of mine and he commented that Israel is the apple of God's eye and what that means. I hope I can explain as beautifully as it was explained to me. So, this is literally translated "little man of the eye" meaning the tiny reflection you can see of yourself in someone's pupil. My friend went on to say that Israel can see themselves in God. That is so beautiful to me! And since we as Christians are grafted into the family we then can also see ourselves in God! I have thought about this all week and I truly can see myself in God, this gives me so much joy and peace, it's one more blessing for me and I hope this blesses you as well!
