In the scriptures, a sparrow represented the lowliest of common creatures God created. Yet time and time again, we are reminded that God is so active and caring that not even a sparrow is lost without Him knowing. He watches over them, just like He watches over His children. In Mathew 10:29 Jesus said “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father.” Mathew 6:26 states, “Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?” The Lord was reminding those listening that they need not be anxious about anything because He was in control.
Jesus also had a heart for children. In Mathew 19, He told the adults that were preventing the children from crowding him, “Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” He also has given us a heart for children, especially those that have special needs or need a family. We are starting in Varna, Bulgaria, working with a local church and other organizations with the same goals.
