“Are not two sparrows sold for a cent? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So do not fear; you are more valuable than many sparrows” (Matthew 10:29-31).

It’s easy to assume God would be interested only in the big things—life and death issues. Jesus reminds us, however, that God is like a doting father, interested in the most minute details of our existence. Since the challenges of life are delivered by thousands of minnows and rarely a killer shark, it is comforting to know that God is Lord of even the smallest of things.
