The Little Sparrow


"Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? Yet not one of them falls to the ground apart from the will of the Father" (Matt.10:29).

We've all probably seen the same little sparrow flying around. It longs to fly into the trees as it sees the other birds do, but it cannot. There was a time in its life when it could, but one seemingly small mistake brought him to this place in his life. Who knows, if someone tried to rescue him he would probably resist. There is ample food and water and it is warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Because of his condition, the little sparrow will die as a captive, because as you might have guessed already, he is trapped inside a shopping mall. And so it is that we must not allow ourselves to fly into the shopping mall of sin. Oh, Satan will set the trap. He will put things before us that look very good. If we allow ourselves in, we may become like that small sparrow. In the beginning we may seek to escape but find that we cannot do it on our own. We see the promise of freedom and safety on the other side but don't know how to get there. And then, sadly,after period of adjustment, we can find a measure of comfort here and no longer try to regain our freedom...We even hold a glimmer of hope that God will see our plight and just pluck us out and give us back our freedom. But we think back to the Old Testament and see God's people flee from him so many times and also lose their freedom..So..... How do we get out? Stay tuned tomorrow for The Great Escape....

Have a wonderful day.... Make a difference... Love mark Phil.4:11
