Whatever you did for the least of these … Matthew 25:40
Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. Luke 12:6-7 NIV
Ever have God show you something over and over again? Lately, for me it has been “the sparrow.” I see merchandise with the line from the song His Eye is on the Sparrow. I read the verses in the Bible talking about it. Someone just happens to mention a sparrow in casual conversation. Over and over again.
A couple of weeks ago, I was cruising through the 70% off table at Belk’s. You know I love me a good bargain. (I got it honest. I swear, my mama can walk in a store, and they just give her stuff.) Anyway, back to my story. I walked in Belk’s and there sat the cutest little bird. At $3.00, he was just calling, “Cheap, Cheap!” So, of course he came home with me. I found just the right spot in my dining room in a framed shadow box. Every time I look at that bird I hear, “His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.” I’ve decided I need something with that written on it to put next to him. Don’t you love how God sends reminders of His love even on the bargain table at Belk’s?
Listen to the lyrics of this old song and tell me…why do you feel discouraged today? His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches you.
Enjoy the video. Sandi Patty is singing. Or I should say sanging, cause that girl can sang! I know when Jesus returns He will ask Sandi to lead us all in How Great Thou Art. She’s just that good.
