Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.
Not long ago I saw a little bird lying still
and cold on the ground.
I thought to myself,
‘I barely missed seeing God,
for He has just been here to a funeral.’
This was the bird that the Lord used as an illustration
to impress His disciples with the precious lesson of trust.
He told them that there was not a single sparrow
which falls to the ground without being noticed
by God the Father,
and not one of them is forgotten by Him.
Since the Heavenly Father cares so much
for one these little two-ounce sparrows,
is it no wonder that we are of more value
than many sparrows?
Multiply the infinite care
of the Creator of the universe by the word “many”
and you have some idea of His care for you.
Since He feeds them and cloths them
with such warmth and attention,
will He not much more feed and clothe you? ~~~~ M. T.
You are God’s Sparrow . . .Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
