Many Sparrows

Jesus said “Two sparrows are sold in a market place for a farthing and one shall not fall from Heaven, except your heavenly Father knows about it and you are worth more than many sparrows.”

Why do you think He used a sparrow to value how much God loved them, when surely it would have been easier to have told the crowd that God loved them more than all the gold and treasure on Earth?

The reason He could not make a materialistic comparison was that He had already said: “What shall it profit you to gain the whole world and lose your very own soul?”  He was making the point that if you put material law over spiritual law you will damage or even lose your soul.

Consequently, it was impossible for him to use the wealth of the world to measure the love of God for all of us.  Instead He used something that was priceless, literally priceless.  He used the example of a tiny sparrow’s life because it is divine, as all things created by God are divine.  Yet they were blinded to the truth because two sparrows were sold in the market for just a farthing.

In giving us this simple yet beautiful teaching Jesus gave us a new spiritual value system to follow.

When we look back over the centuries it is so very sad that we have not learned this vital lesson.  Man still gives pride of place in his life to the pursuit of power and riches, but at the cost of his spiritual development.  In today’s world the taking of human life and the destruction of Mother Nature for material gain is common place.  But this can never be right for the divine is being traded for the material.

I am not saying that all rich or powerful people are bad, because many do excellent charitable work with their money and use their influence for good.  Nor am I saying all poor people are good because evil is not the exclusive domain of the rich and privileged.

In particular I refer to those who built their wealth on suffering.  They hoard their resources and will not help those who are less fortunate.  They watch them die from starvation and disease without a hint of human compassion or remorse. They are cash rich but spiritually impoverished.

When they make the change called death they will find the roles reversed, for they will become the servants of those they exploited, abused and hurt.

One day this world will live under spiritual law and the true meaning of “You are worth more than many sparrows”, will become apparent for all to see.
