In the summer time when it gets extremely hot you can see birds and other wild life panting because it is their way of perspiring. They need water to drink. Lots of people will have birdbaths in their yards for the birds. They drink from this water and will also take baths. The deer I feed will sometimes go to the birdbath I have to drink water in the summer and winter.
Have you ever stopped to look, I mean really look at the creatures God has given us? There are so many and they are beautiful in their own way. Take the opossums that I think are so beautiful, most people think they are the one of the ugliest creatures. Perhaps there is an animal that you think is really beautiful and I wouldn't, that is okay as we are all different and we see things differently.
God has made different types of animals just as He has people. The only difference is people are made in His image. Genesis 1:26-27; "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:... v.27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them". Man and woman were a special creation of God although everything He created is special. We, man and woman are both created in the likeness and image of God. We mean a lot to God in fact He loves us very much.
Matthew 10:31; "Fear ye not therefore, ye are of more value than many sparrows". This is telling us God values us and our personal needs more than the sparrows. God knows all of our needs, trials, and sorrows. We are never far away from His presence, His care, and His concerns. He does want to know we are faithful and loyal to Him and He wants to know we love Him above all else. If He cares so much for the sparrows just look at how He cares for us. He takes care of our lives, our comforts, and our souls. He takes better care of us than we do ourselves. He knows exactly what is best for us. We just have to learn to listen to what He says to us. He may say this to us through Scripture, music, through another person, and sometimes He does speak to us audibly.
So, the next time you think you aren't important just remember you are important to God as His word tells us that we are.
Thank you for stopping by and may you know the peace of the Lord. Blessings!
