Aren’t five sparrows sold for two small coins?[a] Yet not one of them is overlooked by God. Even the hairs on your head are all counted. Don’t be afraid. You are worth more than many sparrows. – Luke 12: 6

It’s easy, being such a small part of ginormous universe, to feel insignificant.  As one of about 7.4 billion people currently living on planet Earth, it’s hard not to feel inconsequential some days.

Today’s verse from Luke 12, Jesus’ words remind us that God views us very differently.

You may seem meaningless to others feel as if your contribution to society doesn’t matter, but The Lord sees it otherwise.  You matter to God.

Let that sink in.  Read it again.  You matter to God.  To God, your worth it.  Worth Jesus coming to live among us and die for us.  God knows you and loves you, even if you feel like your life doesn’t matter much.

I’ve always liked this quote:

“To the world you may be just one person, but to one person, you may be the world.”

I think we all need to be reminded from time to time, that to God, you’re worth it, worth everything.

Prayer:  Lord, it’s almost incomprehensible that I matter to you, but you say that I do.  your love, shown through Jesus, is the proof.  Today, I take comfort and solace and find motivation and strength from knowing this, that to you, I’m worth it.  Amen.
