Sparrows don’t worry

A construction crew building a new road had to knock down trees as it progressed. Their supervisor noticed that one tree had a nest of young birds who couldn’t yet fly, so he marked it not to be bulldozed. A few weeks later he went back and saw that the fledglings were gone. So he had the tree cut down. As it crashed to the ground the nest fell clear, and in it he found a scrap of paper torn from a Sunday school lesson book. On it were these words: ‘Jesus said that not even a sparrow can fall to the ground without God knowing’, and ‘He cares for you.’
Well, that was certainly true for those birds. But Jesus went on to say that we are much more valuable to God than sparrows, and that’s why we shouldn’t ruin our lives with worry.
