They're Not His Redeemed!

 
 

“What is the price of five sparrows—two copper coins? Yet God does not forget a single one of them. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows."  ~  Jesus (Luke 12:6-7 NLT)

I watched a flock of birds soaring over my head today!  Beautiful.  Strong.  Effortless...without a care.  Why?  Because The Creator cares for them.  He feeds them, directs them and knows each one of them as His own.  He never forgets even one of them!

Jesus is reminding us that if God cares so greatly for the birds, how much more does He care for us?  Birds are valuable but...they're not His Redeemed.  Birds are spectacular but...they're not in covenant with God.

My friend, trust and obey the God who made you.  He cares for you and loves you more than you can ever understand.  He knows you better than you know yourself and has promised to never forget you!
