God uses sparrows to teach us a lesson in trust:
His Eye Is On The Sparrow
Early every evening as dusk was beginning to fall, a half dozen sparrows would show up outside our living room window. We watched as they perched on the braces of the awning. Here they each had their special niches, and soon hunkered down for the night. God’s eyes were watching them too, according to what Jesus said in Matthew 10:29,31:
“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them falls to the ground apart from the will of the Father . . . So don’t be afraid, you are worth more than many sparrows.”
Sparrows have lived around humans for centuries. They are the least significant of the over 9,000 species of birds, but Jesus used them as an example. With drab coloring and a short sharp incessant cheep, cheep, cheep, they were not blessed with the bright colorings of the blue jays or orioles, nor were they endowed with the joyful song of the lark. But Jesus said that if God keeps tabs on sparrows and knows where they are going and sees that their needs are met, should you doubt that God keeps tabs on you?
God uses sparrows to teach us a lesson in trust. The sparrows have no fear that God won’t come through for them. They daily fly around relaxed, assured of His provision and protection. And we can be assured of God’s care too, for we are worth more than many sparrows!
