Tiny Sparrow by Anna Darlene Free Edmondson
“Look at the birds of the air, your Heavenly Father keeps feeding them. Are you not worth much more than they?”(Matt 6:26 AMP).
When Jesus was growing up, the common price for two sparrows was a very small Jewish coin [farthing] containing four grains of silver. Five sparrows were sold for two farthings that made them cheaper still. If the poor could not afford a lamb, they would offer these little birds as their temple sacrifice.
Jesus taught His followers how crucial it was to put their trust in God. He instructed them to rely on the Father’s omnipotent power rather than their own strength. Jesus knew the agony and torture they would endure as they carried the Good News to the world.
Using a parable, the Lord compared the disciples to that of a tender sparrow. Anticipating their anxious and doubtful minds, Jesus lovingly proclaimed. “Do not be afraid of those who kill the body, [insignificant] sparrows are not forgotten before God. Do not fear. You are of much more value than many sparrows” (Luke 12:4-7 NKJV).
Absolute trust is the shortest path to pleasing the heart of God. Just as the Giver of Life watches over the creatures of the earth, He will sustain His children. All creation is under our almighty Father’s watchful eyes and Divine care. He delights to see us worry-free and unafraid as we minister the Gospel to a lost and hurting world. May we wholeheartedly trust our unseen Provider.
