How can a lewis structure help us identify bases and acids?

For Lewis acids and bases, the acid and base in a reaction are identified by which donates an e- pair(Lewis base) and which accepts an e- pair (Lewis acid). Lewis structures can be helpful to identify acids and bases because they visually represent the transfer of the e- pair
