Referring to Matthew 10 the visiting preacher said,
and had used these thoughts to support verse 15.
didn’t know when he prepared his message for our little group of believers,
I marveled that God cared so intimately and so deeply about His creation.
I was also thrilled with this verse tucked in between the sparrow thoughts.
“But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.”
“Do not worry about tomorrow,
for tomorrow will worry about its own things.
Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.”
The God of Heaven was telling me not to worry.
He tells us He sees and understands these small details,
so we’ll entrust Him with the
of our lives.
Another verse in that passage tells me why.
“Do not fear therefore;
you are of more value than many sparrows.”
We’re valued by a hair-counting, sparrow-watching
loving and eternal God.
That’s a good reason to not worry.
