His Eye Is On The Sparrow

October 10, 2015



What is the price of five sparrows—two copper coins? Yet God does not forget a single one of them. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows.”

~Luke 12:6-7, NLT


“I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth- that God Governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid?”

~Benjamin Franklin


The sparrow is a tiny, dirty little bird and very common. God must love them because He created so many of them. Personally, I don’t know of a single person who values a sparrow. They make a mess every where they go and they run off the more attractive birds. However, during the time Jesus walked the earth, sparrows did have some value. They were sold in the local markets for food. People put them on skewers and roasted them over fire. It just so happened that the popular number for birds on a stick was five so they sold them five at a time. Sparrows were cheap and only eaten by those who couldn’t afford something more tasty.

Jesus said, “But not a single sparrow can fall to the ground without your Father knowing it.” If He cares about the sparrows, a cheap, common, unattractive and dirty little bird, how much more does He love you. Jesus didn’t die for sparrows, He died for you.


  • I went to see Leon Livingston about noon or a little after. He is not doing well. Keith said he had a real bad night on Thursday. I hope last night went better. Pray for Brenda and the children. It has been a hard week for the entire family.
  • Gary is still at Health South: we are probably going that way today.
  • Kelvin is at home but has to keep the leg elevated or swelling and pain are unbearable. He is in good spirits as is his primary care giver {TLC}. Keri was not feeling good yesterday.
  • Kane came home for the ball game but with the weather like it was, I doubt that he got out: Craig was carrying them back last night.
  • What about the rain? Wow! It was wonderful. I don’t know how much we got here at Rocky Ford but Danville got a flood. It has been too dry here to do anything. THANK YOU JESUS FOR THE RAIN.
  • To Bobby and anyone that like’s the extra, extra: my email is still fowled up. I will get it sorted out one day, I hope.

Gary, Keri and Kane
