Monsters, Inc. and God

You know Roz in Monster’s Inc? She’s the secretary lady who tells Mike Wazowski, “I’ve got my eye on you.” Well, recently she taught me something about God. Weird, huh?

Check it out-
“Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him,
    on those who hope in his steadfast love,” (Psalm 33:18)

At first I didn’t like that idea. Keeping an eye on someone usually has a bad connotation. Roz didn’t say this to Mike in a good way. Neither do I when I say it to the boys.

Sadly enough, I tend to think of God’s eye being on me in the same way.
But look at  the next verse-

“that he may deliver their soul from death
    and keep them alive in famine.” (Psalm 33:19)

You know why God is keeping His eye on me. It’s not to catch me if I mess up. He already knows I will. If I knew my boys were destined to fail would I keep an eye on them? No, I don’t want to see that.

So, why is He keeping His eye on me? Because He loves me. He wants to deliver me, keep me going, love me.

That I like. That’s the kind of person I want keeping an eye on me. Not Roz, not anyone. Only a God who loves me like that!
