We live in a crazy world of assigning incredible value to almost anything. We all place value on our families, our jobs, our health, our friends, and our possessions to varying degrees. We all love and place value to animals in differing degree.
However, our Lord Jesus Christ tells us that we are of MUCH MORE value than the birds which God cares for and feeds.
Luke 12:22-24 (ESV) And he said to his disciples, “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat, nor about your body, what you will put on. 23 For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing. 24 Consider the ravens: they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how MUCH MORE value are you than the birds!
