Are not five sparrows sold for two small coins? Yet not one of them has escaped the notice of God. Even the hairs of your head have all been counted. Do not be afraid. You are worth more than many sparrows. (Luke 12:1-7)
These are reassuring words from Jesus to His disciples. They should reassure us as well.
At times, we may feel that God has forgotten about us. This feeling comes from our own insecurity, our own sense of unworthiness. Why would God “waste” His time on me? Surely He has better things to do then worry about me.
The message from Jesus is the same message that we have shared with our students the last few years: “You are loved. You have value. You are not alone.”
No one is beyond the notice of God. We are worth His time and attention.
