“Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.” (Luke 12:6-7)
A farthing is a monetary measurement that is about equal to 1/4 of a penny. So if five sparrows are sold for two farthings the buyer did not even spend one cent! The point of the verse here in Luke is that as Jesus was speaking to his disciples he was reminding them of how very important each one of them is to God. God knows even the “very hairs of your head” … He knows how many you have, right now at this moment!
How refreshing is it that God knows us so well. Do you know Him as well? The way to get to know your Heavenly Father is to be daily in the word. You need an idea of how to read the Bible? Start by reading just one Psalm per day. You will be delighted at what God has to say to you.
