Consider the birds

As you know, I’ve been thinking about the Sermon on the Mount recently. I’ve been so amazed and taken aback by the things Jesus says!

One thing that I’ve been finding a real help recently is a verse that we at St Paul’s have been mulling over; especially my friend/vicar/boss, Justin and I.

You can find it in Matthew 6. Jesus is talking about worry. But it seems to me as if Jesus is talking about more than worry. He’s giving a promise, and giving reassurance to those who put their hope in him. He uses the beautiful picture of birds and how they live. He then directly addresses us…


Have a look at This:

Matthew 6:26

Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are?

I just LOVE the fact that Jesus tells us that we are valuable to him through this picture. He loves us and provides for us. There is never need to worry about every day life. Amen!
