five sparrows



Luke 12:6-7

Luk 12:6 Aren’t five sparrows sold for two assarions? Yet not one of them is forgotten before God.
Luk 12:7 In fact, even the hairs on your head are all numbered. Do not be afraid; you are more valuable than many sparrows.

five sparrows

This carpenter’s son knew how much it cost to purchase five sparrows in the market. He used that bit of trivia to remind his followers that everything has value in this world, and they are more valuable than those five sparrows.

There are some days when we do feel that value. There are some days we want to give up, and we find it very hard to believe that God places any value on our lives. But in our frustration and temptation to blamed God and accuse him of not caring, he stays there beside us. He knows our value even when we are tempted to question it.

LORD, forgive us for failing to bless you and trust your love.
