Words from the Heart for Tuesday October 15th, 2019

Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

Matthew 10:29-31 (NIV)

Numbered Hairs

According to a report by CTV last year, a drug that created the odd side effect of unwanted full body hair growth may hold the key to a new way to treat male baldness. Researchers from the University of Manchester think they have found a way to harness this odd side effect to coax dormant hair follicles to grow again. The drug can be applied directly to a balding human scalp and could “wake up” resting hair follicles and cause them to begin to grow again.

I have too often heard people say, when dealing with something in their lives, “I won’t bother God with this. It is too small a matter with which to concern God. He has bigger issues to deal with.” If you are thinking this, I want to assure you that there is nothing too seemingly insignificant in God’s sight. He cares deeply for you. I remember as a child singing a hymn in Sunday School that says, “God sees the little sparrow fall, it meets His tender view; if God so loves the little birds, I know He loves me too.” That song is based on the words of Matthew 10:29-31: “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground outside your Father’s care. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” Sparrows are tiny birds – the smallest only weigh half an ounce! But the Bible says not one of them will fall to the ground outside God’s care. I suspect that the problem you feel is too insignificant to bring to God is worth more to God than a half ounce sparrow. Bring it to Him today.

These have been words from the heart.
