Every species in the ocean plays an important part, no matter how small . Five sparrows may be sold for 2 pennies but God does not forget to feed them. Our life’s value is not based on our monetary worth- we always have a choice re: whose authority we revere. In this passage, Jesus admonishes us to fear not, we are more valuable than the sparrows. Won’t God also provide for our every need when we seek first His kingdom? The crowds were cowering under the oppressive rule of the Pharisees and Jesus reminded them that in the end the One with authority over eternity has considered them worthy of His Son.- Teresa #fearnot
Luke 12:4-7 (ESV)
4 “I tell you, my friends, do not fear those who kill the body, and after that have nothing more that they can do. 5 But I will warn you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has authority to cast into hell.[b] Yes, I tell you, fear him! 6 Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies?[c] And not one of them is forgotten before God. 7 Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows.
