The eyes of Jehovah are everywhere, watching both the bad and the good. This is taken from Proverbs 15:3.

Today, electronic eyes are everywhere. Should the widespread use of surveillance cameras in any way remind us of our loving Father, Jehovah? The Bible does say that his eyes “are everywhere.” But does this mean that he is constantly scrutinizing what we are doing? Does God watch over us merely to enforce his laws, with punishment in mind? The book of Jeremiah 16:17 tells us: “For my eyes are on everything they do. They have not been hidden from before me, Nor has their error been hidden from my eyes.” The book of Hebrews 4:13 tells us: “And there is not a creation that is hidden from his sight, but all things are naked and openly exposed to the eyes of the one whom we must give an account.”

Not at all! Jehovah observes us primarily because he loves each one of us and is interested in our welfare. The book of 1 Peter 3:12 tells us: “For the eyes of Jehovah are on the righteous, and his ears listen to their supplication, but the face of Jehovah is against those doing bad things.””

He shows this (1) by warning us when we show bad inclinations, (2) by correcting us when we take wrong steps, (3) by guiding us through principles found in his Word, (4) by helping us when we face various trials, and (5) by rewarding us when he notices the good in us.
