GOD’S LOVE AND NATURE: THE LITTLE SPARROWS

There will always be someone willing to hurt you, put you down, belittle your accomplishments and judge your soul. It is a fact that we all must face. 
However, if you realize that God is a best friend that stands beside you when others cast stones, you will never be afraid, never feel worthless and never feel alone. – Shannon Adler

“His eye is on the sparrow and I know He watches me.” Why of all birds did the composer of this lovely song write and sing about the sparrow? The eagle has a very terrific vision and strength on its wings, the ostrich seem to be the biggest or largest bird, and the humming bird can fly sideways; why or what is so peculiar about a sparrow?

After mother sparrow hatches her eggs and baby sparrows emerge, they are fed by parents for only five to six weeks, and left to provide livelihood for themselves afterwards.

You can imagine how you will feel if told by your parents at age five [5] to leave the house and cater for your own needs. How these babies feed and live are no more the business and duties of both parents. But God who formed them cares for them.
If God so cares for little sparrows of five weeks old and onward till their deaths, it is very rhetorical to ask; won’t He also care for you who are created after His similitude?

As God watches over the sparrows to be sure they grow to start a family by nesting and mating, so He watches over you to be certain of your welfare and safety. Just think of this: can God so care for birds and be too occupied as to forget or neglect His image? If God can spend so much time and details with birds, be convinced that He is pretty concerned about every tiny detail of your entire life.

PAX VOBISCUM
