You are Valuable

Today's Scripture

Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? - (Matthew 6:26) (NKJV).

Thoughts for Today

Two sparrows were talking perching on a roadside tree. One said, "Why these people are going here and there with a sad countenance? I don't understand." The other replied, "I think they don't have a Father like we have who keeps us every day." Hearing this, the tree could not be silent and said, "My friends, I have been watching them for a long time too. They seem to worry unnecessarily. The One who adorns me and all these grass, won't He meet their needs as well? Maybe they don't believe in God like us". The birds said, "Yes, it looks like that" and laughed. The sparrows bade good-bye to the tree and went to take the food readied by God.

Yes, we human beings, like Martha, worry about too many things and are afraid. Young people worry if the hairs drop or turn grey, of prickle and so many other things. Those who have finished studies worry about getting a good job and a spouse. Parents worry about the growth of their children and their future. Every moment, minute and day we bear so many worries. If you reflect, you will realize that most of them are unnecessary worries.

But the Bible says that the Lord does not forget even a sparrow which is not
even worth twenty rupees. Then how can He not remember us? Aren't we valuable in His sight? He has counted all our hairs. If he keeps account of the worthless hair, how can he not think about our plans and goals? How will He, Who chose us in our mothers' womb, forsake us? Won't He, Who feeds the birds, feed you? Won't He, Who decorates the flowers with so many colors, give you dress? He is sufficient to meet all your needs when you put your burdens on Him.

Many parents are burdened with worries about their children. They don't even sleep well because the worry about their children's future weighs heavily on their hearts. If you worry, your body becomes weak as even the food does not nourish your body. That is why the Word of God says, "Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?" The One who promised "Can a woman forget her nursing child, And not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, yet I will not forget you." (Isaiah 49:15) will never forget you. Therefore, dearly beloved, since the Lord God is concerned about you and the future of your children are in His hands, why should you worry? He will look after everything. Amen, Hallelujah.

You cannot increase one cubit By worrying. Don't worry The Lord will enquire about you, Sustain you, bear you And console you!

Prayer: "Our Loving Heavenly Father, we thank you for granting us grace to see the first day of st month of the year with health and strength. Surround us with Your grace throughout this month. As our times are in Your hands, help us to put all our cares on You. We lay down all our worries at Your feet as we are more valuable than the sparrows. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Tuesday and God Bless you.
