Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. (Matthew 10:29-31)

From a human point of view, it's quite astounding that Jesus should say, "even the very hairs of your head are all numbered." Have you ever thought about the number? Researchers say these about the hairs on our head.

"Hair is the fastest growing tissue in the body, second only to bone marrow. 35 meters of hair fiber is produced every day on the average adult scalp. The average scalp has 100,000 hairs. Redheads have the least at 80,000; brown and black haired persons have about 100,000; and blondes have the most at 120,000. 90% of scalp hairs are growing and 10% are resting. It is normal to lose 100 hairs per day from the scalp. You must lose over 50% of your scalp hairs before it is apparent to anyone."

We can only approximate. Only God knows the exact number!

The finer details of our lives are also known to him. Nothing is hidden.

The greatest thing is that he loves us despite all our frailties. Man may condemn us because of our outward appearances, but God loves us as we are, because he intended to create us for his own purpose and glory.

Are you unhappy that no one cares for you as you would like them to? Are you sad that you are not appreciated by others? Take heart. Jesus cares for you.

He says, "Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don't be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows."

Of much worth in the eyes of Jesus!
