How Much More Valuable You Are

by Kimberly B. Southall

Do you give much thought to birds? Sure, it's rather neat in the spring to discover a bird's nest. And it's nice to feed the birds when we can. But most of the time, we have things other than birds to occupy our thoughts. Yet, all the time, God remembers the birds and takes care of them:

Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! --Luke 12:24 (NIV) [See also Matthew 6:26.]
Isn't that an awesome truth to remember? Considering that God remembers to take care of and feed the birds is great. But as Jesus tells us, we are even more valuable than the birds. You see, God really loves us. He loves you. God never forgets about us-we are always on His mind. And He is always taking care of us; He is taking care of you. How much more valuable you are than birds!
