Precious in His Sight

Precious in His Sight

Matthew 10:29“Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care.”

Jesus shares this reassuring truth – if God cares about insignificant sparrows, how much more does He care about us, His children?

Consider the Sparrows

Sparrows were common birds that people regarded as virtually worthless. Yet Jesus says God cares when even one sparrow falls.

If He minds seemingly trivial things in creation, we can trust He attends to our lives.

Our problems and pains are not trivial to God. He cares deeply when one of His beloved children suffers, no matter how small we feel. Our weakness moves His heart.

We Are Far More Valuable

Jesus argues from the lesser to the greater – if God cares for sparrows which offer little value, how much more does He care for humans made in His image?

We possess immeasurable worth to Him.

God sees each tear, hears every cry, and catches all our falls.

No detail of our lives escapes His notice or concerns. He treasures us as His prized possession.

Living in Light of God’s Care

May this truth anchor us when turmoil strikes. God is mindful!

Cast all cares on Him, trusting His watchful eye. There’s no need to unravel when we’re precious in His sight. You are noticed. You are not alone.

Lord, Thank You for Caring

Lord, the immense problems of life often cloud my view of Your intimate care. Thank You that not even a tiny sparrow escapes Your sight. Remind me I’m precious to You. Quiet my heart to receive Your comfort anew.

Love Takes Action

Love Takes Action

1 Timothy 5:8 Anyone who does not provide for their relatives, and especially for their own household, has denied the faith and is worse than an unbeliever.

Assessing Our Love

It’s easy to say we love others, including family. But talk without action is empty.

This verse offers a tough standard – love shows up in practical provision.

Honoring Our Own Household

At minimum, attending to the needs of our immediate family demonstrates love’s reality.

If we disregard this, our faith rings hollow. Love takes action.

From there, we extend care to the wider circle of relatives. Inconvenience and cost cannot be excuses for ignoring their well-being. Love serves.

Worse than an Unbeliever

If those in our own household lack basic needs while we live comfortably, something is terribly wrong!

Love meets needs sacrificially, going beyond lip service.

Lord, Show Me How to Love

Lord, reveal areas where my love has been inactive toward my family. Convict me where I’ve been selfish and complacent, missing chances to serve. Give me wisdom and means to provide for their needs generously.
