More than a sparrow, you're worth something, I swear (Luke 12:6-7)

"Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before God. Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows." - Luke 12:6-7

This thing that is cheap and of little value to you, God has not forgotten. He has not forgotten you either (nor will He), He knows you intimately, and you are of much worth.

I love my daughter and I spend a good amount of time with her. I find myself wishing she were awake so we could play, but she still sleeps most of the time. I also love my iPhone, my computer, cheddar cheese, and my one leather chair. But none of that stuff can hold a candle to my love my daughter. I care about her in a unique way, I pray for her daily (I don't really pray for the future of my computer - I plan to throw it away someday).

God is taking something we look on as not all that important. A sparrow. We might think they're beautiful, but if a flock was killed we wouldn't lose any sleep over it. But God still values them more than we could ever fathom. And us even more.

If you look back on High School you'll remember that no one ever really looked at you. No one cared what you were wearing, or did (for the most part), they were all too preoccupied with themselves. But God cares enough about you to know even how much hair you have.

Okay, enough on that. Our God cares. The hair on our heads? That's a ridiculous number to know.

He cares for us in amounts which to us seem absurd.
