January 12, 2019: SOAP #3327:   Genesis 29-30; Luke 12

Scripture:  Luke (NIV) 12:6 Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. 7 Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.

Observation:   Even the parts of creation that we consider very insignificant have value to God.   If we realize the value of the insignificant, then the value of everything else is raised.

And the opposite is true.   If we lessen the value of that which has great value, then that with lesser value ends up having no value.

Application: Although it carries the image of God, abortion is the judgment that life in the womb has no value.   It can be destroyed and discarded with no lingering affect.

We cannot let anyone fool us, 'if not one of them (sparrows) is forgotten by God' surely we must believe that 'not one of them (aborted babies) is forgotten by God.'

Each man, woman, and child is 'worth more than, not just one, not just five, but many sparrows.'   We have great value to our Heavenly Father.

Prayer:     Heavenly Father, it is good to be reminded that you personally value me.   As an individual, I am worth more to you than many sparrows.   You sent your son, Jesus, my Lord to die for my sins.   Just thinking about this causes my heart to flutter.  Amen
