God's Precious Children

God takes and keeps all the concerns of His children, even of those that are most minute, and least regarded. This is a matter of encouragement to live in continual dependence upon God’s providential care, which extends itself to all occurrence.
If God numbers our hairs, it intimates that He takes better care of us than we do ourselves.  Not the least hurt shall be done to us without God’s consideration, so precious to God are His children.

[Matthew Henry]


Matthew 10:29-31 ... Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father.  But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows.

Romans 8:17 ... The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

1 Peter 5:7 ... Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
