Birds (1)

Our Bible Reading today tells us about a time when Jesus was speaking to a large group of people. In verses 6 and 7, Jesus said, “When birds are sold, five small birds cost only two pennies. But God does not forget any of them. Yes, God even knows how many hairs you have on your head. Don’t be afraid. You are worth much more than many birds.”
I have faced difficult situations in my life when I felt like I was a small, timid bird. But in these verses Jesus reminds us that God pays attention to the birds. So we can know that He is aware of what is happening to us, too.
In verse 24, Jesus talked about birds again. He said that God feeds them. Then Jesus added, “And you are worth much more than birds” Just as God provides food for the birds, He will also provide for our needs.
Even in times when our faith is small, we can be sure that God is with us, taking care of us and giving us what we need. Be sure to thank Him today!
