October 17, 2014     Ephesians 1:11-14;   Luke 12:1-7

Why in the world would Jesus even bring up counting the number of hairs on our head … or how much a sparrow costs? We might find it strange and say … who cares?

As believers … we know that our God cares!

Paul … in the first reading … tells us that we are God’s own … chosen from the beginning.

In today’s Gospel … Jesus assures us and emphasizes that we are loved and have great value in God’s eyes.

We believe that we are created in God’s image and likeness. That, in itself … gives us value beyond measure.

If God loved us so much … it is important that we see that image of God in one another. It is a call to treat one another with respect and love.

Today’s Gospel gives us several important messages:

  • First … it makes us aware that all of us are special

 

  • Second … it urges us to live this message in our dealings with others

 

  • Third … the Gospel challenges us to shape our sense of self-worth to enable us to love God and others more fully.

 

May we really see and act as true followers of Jesus … valuing our own dignity and that of others.
