"There is no need to be afraid you are worth more than hundreds of sparrows." Luke 12 : 7

Although the Scribes and Pharisees left,  Jesus was still surrounded by thousands of people who were eager to hear his teaching. He warns them of whom they must beware. Avoid those who not only kill the body but also kill the soul. “Be on your guard of the yeast of the Pharisees, that is their hypocrisy.”(Luke 12 : 1)   At the same time he asks them not to be afraid, as they are worth more than hundreds of sparrows. He is telling us that we are precious in his eyes.

Prayer

Thank you Jesus, for these consoling words. Let us not be caught up in the wrangling and falsehood around us. Keep us true to the faith that reveals you as our Redeemer and Saviour. Blood of Christ wash me, purify me and prepare me for the Kingdom of Heaven. Amen
