Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God.

Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. – Luke 12:6-7

 

In elementary school I was one of the smallest kids. Because I was small, I was the last to be picked for sports teams, and at the first to be chased by bullies. So I learned to be a fast runner! No matter how short or tall we are, we all have days when we feel very small. These are times when we are painfully aware that the world is big; events are huge; challenges in our lives loom large, and we feel like a speck in the universe. When I discovered how important sparrows are to God I learned that small never means insignificant. Nothing is small enough to escape God’s loving care. Especially you! You are God’s beloved child and you are worth everything to Jesus.

 

Affectionately,
