God must have enjoyed creating them because, after all, He made so many of them. In fact, about a dozen are flitting away outside my window even as I write. Psalms : 7 Psalms : 7 I watch, and am as a sparrow alone on the house top. This is incredibly encouraging. Luke 12 : 6 Luke 12 : 6 Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God? And not one of them is forgotten before God.
Here the Western mind can be hindered, because Jesus is utilizing Jewish rabbinical tact in offering a question with the answer embedded in it. Combining the two Gospel accounts we come to see that one coin of the day bought two sparrows, and that two coins would buy five sparrows. Until we realize that spending two coins instead of one would bring an extra sparrow into the deal, one not necessarily figured in and in a sense overlooked.
Yet God overlooks none.
Finches or Sparrows?
Jesus is really making a larger point about human beings here. Fear not therefore: you are of more value than many sparrows. God takes great notice of us in minute detail, being intimately concerned with and caring for us. Are you not of more value than they? Are you not much better than they?
