Worth more than Sparrows

“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 all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”

Matthew 10:29-30 TNIV

When I read where Jesus says not even a sparrow can fall to the ground without our Father knowing it, I think of how awesome God is.

How caring he is for His creation – if he cares so much for even a sparrow, then how much more must he care for us? We are always inside our Father’s care, never on the outside.

He sees and knows all we do and say. He also knows all our needs. What great comfort that we don’t have to worry or be afraid, for we have a loving Father in heaven, on whom we can depend. Whatever situation we find ourselves in, we can trust and rely on him. “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7).

We can be sure that he is here with us at all times. God says, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5). Glory to God!

Prayer

Dear Father, there are many things in life that concern me. Too often I become worried or afraid about what may or may not happen. Fill my heart with the care that you have for me and cast out all fears that trouble my soul.

Amen.
