BE NOT AFRAID, YOU ARE WORTH MORE THAN MANY SPARROWS: REFLECTION BY PRAYER AID


Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. 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 all numbered. So don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. Matt. 10:28-31


Perhaps we are so focused on ourselves that we do not hear Jesus speak to us! Perhaps, we are trying to live our lives independently, and so our situation keeps swinging from manageable to unmanageable. If God maintains a sparrow with love, how much more will He not maintain us with the deepest possible love? Let us be quiet! He is right here with us, while reading this He is holding us in His hand – He is surrounding us with His love – let us put aside all worry and anxiety and decide to trust Him no matter how bad our situation looks, because for God there is no situation that He does not have power over. He says to us “So do not be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”

words, "Do not be afraid.")  New World
