Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?
Beside them the birds of the heavens dwell; they sing among the branches.
Many birds remain in my southern town during the winter months. They visit my backyard frequently where I keep water and a feeder for them.
It amazes me, however, that these birds survive cold and flourish in our neighborhood. Their beautiful songs entertain me as I listen outside my bedroom windows.
Jesus used the birds in a parable to demonstrate how much He cares for you and me. The birds find food and are brilliantly arraigned even in the midst of winter. If He cares so much for the little sparrow, how much more does he care for you and me.
As per usual, I will be linking up my daily posts to many of the linkup listed on my Linkup Parties page. Be sure to check it out as I am currently updating my links.
