So many times as Jesus was teaching He would bring into His parables common everyday observations…things that everyone could relate to, such as birds. In fact, birds were probably flying around as He spoke here. But the point He was making was not that God fed the birds, (though He does) but that in God’s eyes we are so much more valuable than any old bird. So contemplate this today. If the God of the universe lovingly takes care of all the birds…how much more a precious personal possession you are to Him?
