His Eye is on the Sparrow
by Jack E. Dawson
Fear not, therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows. Matthew 10:31
Let’s focus on the tiny little sparrow in this quiet, peaceful, serene place. As it sits on the edge of the broken limb the sparrow may be wondering how he can make the journey to the other side of the creek, especially if he is weak or tired. The Bible tells us that God knows when a sparrow falls and if you look closely you will see that His eye is on the sparrow. Jesus is not only watching and waiting, but it is actually His hand that holds the end of the broken limb. The little sparrow can reach the other side without ever depending on his own strength. Many times in our journey we reach a point that seems hopeless and overwhelming. We may not see at first that Jesus is “in the picture” but He has been there all the time… watching, waiting, caring.
We are more precious to Christ than many sparrows,
and as we find the image of Him lovingly watching
over this one little bird, we can say,
“I know He watches me!”
