Matt 10:31 and Luke 12:7 Fear not - you are worth more than many sparrows. How often have we heard this line with really no follow through. It's kinda like supposed to be an inspirational message.... But it ends up usually falling flat.. So let's go through it... First off.... A caveat... You are NOT worth more than many sparrows to the world. To the world - you are worth only whatever minimum they can pay you to deliver what they need today and no more. Most of the time, this is less than sparrows because sparrows can be sold... They have to pay you. This is succinctly illustrated in The Revelation 18:12-13.. Souls of men is dead last on the list of value to merchants after ear wax and belly button lint . That's how the world values us. But how does God value us - the least of us..... Well - Jesus traded ONE man for 2,000 swine. That's worth approximately $500,000 in today's money. Riddle me this... Why would Hillary's campaign be heading all over "Red States" trying to win House, Senate, and local state elections instead of stumping? Nobody shows up at Hillary rallies - so get crew has to go find some people at the rallies for the state and local Jesus didn't even negotiate - he just said "Yep" - so to Him, that was a fine deal. You are worth far more than you can even understand. It should tell us something that God will bankrupt a multi-million dollar company just to win back ONE person. Worth so much that the blood of bulls and goats could never cover the cost much less sparrows. Worth so much that only the death of His Son could cover the cost.
