If you have tried to keep flocks of sparrows from stealing the seeds of a freshly planted garden or pasture then you know the worth that a sparrow often carries with most people. And yet here Jesus tells us that God is so concerned with every piece of his creation that he knows when a single sparrow dies. If God created us in his image as it tells us in Genesis, then how much more is he going to care about you? Many people mistakenly say that because there is death and sorrow in the world that God doesn’t care or exist, but we live in a fallen world where Satan tries tirelessly to kill, steal, and destroy. But here Jesus assures us that God does care and that he does see us. He even knows the number of hairs upon our head. That is a powerful and caring God and one that I am glad to endeavor to serve daily. Have a great day and God bless!
“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” (Matthew 10: 29-31 NIV)
