“Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” - Matthew 10:29-31
A sparrow is a small, insignificant bird, prolific all over the world, of little value in itself, yet our Heavenly Father cares and feeds them all. The song writer says, “Why should I feel discouraged, why should I feel dismayed, for His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me. I sing because I’m happy, I sing because I’m free, for His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me.”
If He cares for little, insignificant sparrows how much more will He not care for you? There is no need to worry when you place your faith and trust in a loving Heavenly Father. He numbers the hairs on your head and knows every detail of your life. He is infinite yet interested in the little things of life. Throw all your cares upon Him today and trust Him to take care of every situation and need.
Dear heavenly Father, thank You for Your tender, watchful care. I know that You are able to supply all my needs no matter how small or great. Forgive me for fretting and worrying, I know I am worth more than many sparrows to You and You are taking care of me.
