Max Lucado – Fifth Sparrows


Listen to Today’s Devotion

Do we matter?  We fear we don’t.  In Luke 12:6, Jesus says, “Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies?  And not one of them is forgotten before God.”  One penny would buy two sparrows.  Two pennies, however, would buy five.  The seller threw in the fifth for free.

Society has its share of fifth sparrows:  indistinct souls who feel dispensable, disposable, worth little.  It’s time to deal with the fear of not mattering, the fear of insignificance.  Why does God love you so much?  You are his idea.  And God has only good ideas.  Ephesians 2:10 assures us, “For we are God’s masterpiece.  He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.”
