Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. Matthew 10:29-31
Reading those verses, two questions immediately come to mind: Is God really that intimately acquainted with my situation, and does He really care to that degree? Jesus answers both questions with a resounding yes! He knows the intimate details of His creation and He cares deeply. Jesus wants us to know that God loves us more than we can imagine and values every aspect of our lives. In light of that understanding, His command is really very logical: Don’t be afraid! Father knows and He cares. When you surrender your life to Him, you are in good hands!
For Reflection: Are there things in my life that I think are beyond the “concern” of God? What do my decisions say that I believe?
Lord, I thank you for going into such detail to describe how much you care for me! Forgive me for doubting. Let this understanding shape the way I trust you. Please, give me the humility to walk in faith-filled dependence on a daily basis.
