Scripture Challenge - Worth

As I was looking through the Bible for verses that contained the word "worth", I knew this one in Matthew was the one for my page. It's always been a favorite...but I think I say that every time, don't I? lol God created His sweet little sparrows, and He loves and cares for each and every one of them. Yet each one of us are worth more to Him than MANY sparrows!  If He knows when a sparrow falls to the ground, He certainly know what's happening with us in our lives! As often happens with my favorite verses, this one also brought a wonderful old song to mind. It's called "His Eye Is On The Sparrow" and it's based on these verses in Matthew. I'm including the lyrics for you here. It's just the song I need to be singing these days! :o)

Why should I feel discouraged, why should the shadows come,
Why should my heart be lonely, and long for heav’n and home,
When Jesus is my portion? My constant Friend is He:
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

Refrain:
I sing because I’m happy, I sing because I’m free,
For His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

“Let not your heart be troubled,” His tender word I hear,
And resting on His goodness, I lose my doubts and fears;
Though by the path He leadeth, but one step I may see;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.

Whenever I am tempted, whenever clouds arise,
When songs give place to sighing, when hope within me dies,
I draw the closer to Him, from care He sets me free;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me;
His eye is on the sparrow, and I know He watches me.
