Two Sparrows.....

 "Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.  Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows." 
 Matthew 10:29-31

 These little animals are of so small account, that one of them is not valued.....and yet they are not shut out of the divine care; One of them shall not fall to the ground without your Father:....Not one of them is forgotten before God, forgotten to be provided for; he feedeth them. Now he that feeds the sparrows, will not starve the saints.


There is enough in the doctrine of God's providence to silence all the fears of God's people: Ye are of more value than many sparrows.


 If God numbers their hairs, much more does he number their heads, and take care of their lives, their comforts, their souls. It intimates, that God takes more care of them, than they do of themselves. They who are solicitous to number their money, and goods, and cattle, yet were never careful to number their hairs, which fall and are lost, and they never miss them: but God numbers the hairs of his people, and not a hair of their head shall perish; not the least hurt shall be done them, but upon a valuable consideration: so precious to God are his saints, and their lives and deaths!"
Matthew Henry

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
