Aren’t five sparrows sold for two assaria coins? Not one of them is forgotten by God. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Therefore don’t be afraid. You are of more value than many sparrows.
In these two verses Jesus is telling us that God doesn’t miss a thing—that He is personally interested in every aspect of His creation…including even the life of a sparrow.
The point Jesus is making is this: God knows and cares about what’s going on with you. Even the smallest of details matters to Him. He knows how many hairs you have, what you worry about, what you struggle with emotionally, what your heart desires, and what you need.
But God’s attention to detail doesn’t stop with just knowing. No, He not only knows what you need, but He also provides all your needs. And when you put your full faith and trust in Him, God blesses you with things both tangible and intangible that fill your life with a joy and peace you didn’t know were possible.
Jesus sees you as a precious and valuable treasure—so much so that he paid the price or punishment for your sins through His death on the cross. Why? So that you can have the opportunity for eternal life in heaven with Him and God the Father.
Let Jesus show you just how valuable and precious you are.
