Consider The Sparrows by John Hagee

Consider the sparrows. They do not drink Maalox. They do not read the Wall Street Journal or Better Homes and Gardens.

Consider The Sparrows by John Hagee
Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father's will.

If God takes care of the birds, he’ll take care of you!

Consider the sparrows.  They do not drink Maalox.  They do not read the Wall Street Journal or Better Homes and Gardens.  Yet I attend the funeral of every sparrow that falls.  Are you not much more valuable than they?  If I take care of the sparrows, won’t I take care of you?”  Sparrows do not sow, they do not reap, they do not gather into barns.  Sparrows do not have conferences and say, “This is how we’re going to increase production next year.”  But God feeds them.

If God takes care of the birds, He’ll take care of you.  Some people hear what Jesus said and they say, “That’s for me.  I’m not going to work.  I’m going to climb a tree and open my mouth.”  The fact is, God provides worms for birds, but He does not throw them down their throats.  Worry kills more people than work.  Some of you are playing it safe and doing neither.  Birds don’t read books about how to relax.  They don’t say, “Next year, bird, we’re going to eat, drink and be merry.”  Birds do not overindulge.  They only get fat when someone—Man—puts them in cages.

Men, on the other hand, get greedy.  They ignore God’s provision while they stockpile and hoard and accumulate wealth.  Then they start depending on Maalox to get them through the day and Valium to get them through the night.  They live on the naked edge and their homes are living war zones, all because they’re afraid somebody’s going to get all they have.  Finally, when men get their bodies and minds so worried that they can’t lie down at night, then they go to the sporting goods store, by an expensive set of binoculars, and go out in the country and watch the birds—the birds who know that God will take care of them, that God will protect them, and God will provide for them.

Are you as smart as a bird?  Then why are you dominated by stress?  Stop worrying.  In Jesus’ name, take every care you have and give it to the Lord!
