The Sparrow


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

The song lyrics say, “His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He’s watching me.”

I awoke one morning and saw a baby bird, what looked to be a sparrow, land on my balcony. Happy as could be the sparrow bounced on and off, not a care in the world. It looked at me as if to say, “I’m free!” This made me think about what Jesus said in the bible about faith.

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” – Matthew 6:25-27

The Sparrow is a bird that is native to all countries, and has practically followed mankind for centuries. God cares so much about the tiniest of creatures. The Sparrow has no real purpose other than to eat up pesky insects, sings songs, and they are a beauty to watch if you are a bird person.

The sparrow has no security when it comes to a home, or where its next meal will come from, but doesn’t seem to worry. God provides for them which is why they are still around. If God cares about the tiniest of creatures, think of how much more He cares about us?

I put out a bird feeder so that these birds would visit me more often. Nature can often teach us things if we listen closely enough.
