"Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. And even the very hairs of your head are numbered. So don't be afraid, you are worth more than many sparrows." -Matthew 10:29-31Let's face it. Sparrows are boring. I have nothing against sparrows; it is just that they are plain and common. That was Jesus' point. That is why I am glad that Jesus did not say that God's eye is on the bald eagle. We would expect that! But if God cares even for the generic sparrow, then we can know for certain that His eye is on His children.
Above is a recent message I gave on Matthew 10:26-31. The section on birds starts at about 19 minutes.
