Look at the beauty and intricacy in the body of  the bird.  Even though the colors may be muted, they are beautiful, and the pattern of the feathers is striking.  The wide wings that carry the bird in flight fold up into smalll intricate designs when he is not flying.  The tail feathers certainly help guide the bird in flight, but they also help him keep balance while he is walking.  The makeup of any bird is fantastically beautiful in form and function.  What attention was paid to detail in creation of birds, yet Jesus asks, "And aren't you far more valuable to him than they are?"  Genesis 1:27 tells us, "So God created human beings in his own image.  In the image of God , he created them; male and female he created them." (NLT)  We are created in His image, so we are expected to do His work here on earth.  We are to exhibit and send forth His love, and we are to point out the only way to eternal life, Jesus.  How well am I doing?  Can I do better?  Sure I can, but only with HIs help.   Lord, help me to fulfill your purpose for my life.

Matthew 6:26

Our Worth to God

"Look at the birds.  They don't plant or harvest or store food in barns, but your heavenly Father feeds them.  And aren't you far more valuable to him than they are?"  (NLT)
