"What is the price of two sparrows—one copper coin? But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows."
Matthew 10:29-31 (NLT)
We have all been there. That place where we question our worthiness. Where we question our value, or wonder if we are loved. That place of uncertainty where we wonder, "What's next?"
One thing is certain. We should never underestimate our value to God. He loves us all so much that He sent His son to the Earth, to live among His people and teach us right living, and ultimately gave His life so that we might know eternal life with God. His gift of love is immeasurable.
When the uncertainties of this world creep into our lives, we must remember our worth is not measured by what is valued by people here on earth. Our worth is measured only by the One who has known us since before we were born; the One with whom we will share eternity. Only God can judge us, and He knows our true worth. He loves us, despite our human frailties.
The Scripture verses above are from a passage where Jesus is sending out His Disciples. He gives them many instructions, and urges them to not be afraid.
Likewise, we should not be afraid of the trials that come our way. Trust in God. Know that He watches over you with loving care. His eye is on the sparrow, and He watches you, too. Blessings, my friends.
Audrey Assad is one of my favorite female Christian artists. She wrote a fun, modern rendition of a traditional hymn and simply called it "Sparrow". I love to sing this song, and when I do, joy bubbles up inside me and makes me smile while I sing. What joy to know our God loves us!
I'm sharing this lovely song with you all today.
