He who touches God’s servants for harm, touches the apple of his eye. I do not recommend that you touch the apple of God’s eye! 

Jesus spoke a parable that illustrated this very thing. He spoke of a king who arranged a marriage for his son. The king sent out servants to invite the citizens to come to the feast. However, the citizens rejected the invitation and even mocked it. Some of the citizens treated the servants spitefully, killing some of them. Then Jesus said: 

“But when the king heard about it, he was furious. And he sent out his armies, destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.”

– Matthew 22.7
