Beecher: none too small

Saturday, August 27, 2011
    Feast of Monica, Mother of Augustine of Hippo, 387
    [Jesus:] “Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them will fall to the ground apart from the will of your Father. And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.”
    —Matthew 10:29-31 (NIV)
    We sometimes fear to bring our troubles to God, because they must seem small to Him who sitteth on the circle of the earth. But if they are large enough to vex and endanger our welfare, they are large enough to touch His heart of love. For love does not measure by a merchant’s scales, nor with a surveyor’s chain. It hath a delicacy... unknown in any handling of material substance.
    ... Henry Ward Beecher (1813-1887), Summer in the Soul, Edinburgh: A. Strahan & Co., 1859, p. 28 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are the One who cares.
