Sparrows (1)

Sparrows (1)

“Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.”               Lk 12:7 NKJV

In teaching us how to live, Jesus used sparrows to illustrate His point. For the next few days let’s look at them: A worthless sparrow. “Are not five sparrows sold for two copper coins? And not one of them is forgotten before God…Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows” (vv. 6-7 NKJV). In Christ’s day they didn’t sell hamburgers, they sold sparrows on a stick that had been roasted over a fire. You could buy two of them for one copper coin. But you could get five for two copper coins; the vendor threw in the fifth one free. That meant it was worthless. What was Christ’s point? You are valuable in God’s eyes! Do you feel like if you weren’t around nobody would miss you; like your life means nothing? You’d be surprised how many people, even high-profile ones, struggle with a sense of inferiority and inadequacy. When God called Jeremiah to be a prophet, he explained to God that he was afraid of people. So God said, “Do not be afraid of their faces, for I am with you to deliver you” (Jer 1:8 NKJV). When you feel worthless you conclude that others feel the same way about you, so you begin to approach them fearfully, or aggressively, or even resentfully. What’s the answer? Remembering your worth in God’s eyes! There is no rejection in His love, only complete acceptance. You’re connected! You have a friend in high places. Jesus said, “I have called you friends” (Jn 15:15). Will everybody accept you? No, but when you base your worth on God’s love and acceptance, you’re free to enjoy life.
