DAILY DEVO...You are not insignificant to God

Have you ever considered just how important you are to God? In today's Scripture reading, we are compared to that of the sparrow and the birds of flight...

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?" ( Matthew 6:25,26)

There are over 9,000 species of birds, but it is the sparrow that Jesus singles out to make a very clear point to us. Even though a sparrow may seem one of the least, compared to a strong Eagle or a graceful Dove, nevertheless, Jesus says that He takes care of everything that He has created.

He not only cares about the well being of the most insignificant and least noticed bird of the air, but He cares for you and me  even more.

Sometimes I feel insignificant, and often times unnoticed by those who hurriedly brush by; but next time I notice a bird in the air or put out birdseed in the yard, I will be reminded that everything I need rests in the palm of God's Hand. Because just as He cares for the sparrow, nothing that I need will go unseen.

So, how will you approach God today?

Perhaps it's cold outside, and the bird feeder looks slim to you; look to God Who cares for you and He will provide everything you need.


Genesis 19 & 20, Matthew 6:19-34 and Psalm 8.
