He finds great pleasure in you. In Jesus time, the poor bought sparrows as their offering in the Temple. Is was all they could afford, even though two sparrows sold for only a penny.
With something so common, who would be concerned at the loss of a single sparrow? But Jesus said, “Not one sparrow falls to the ground without your Father knowing.” Not one! Worth only half a penny’s value…but still our Father knows.
What a wonder – God knows the very least among us.
And what a greater wonder – God cares. Whatever you may feel or face today, “there is no need to be afraid. You are worth more than many sparrows.” (Luke 12:6, 7)
Thank you that I am loved and valued by you. Amen.
