"If a bird's nest chance to be before thee in the way, in any tree or on the ground, with young ones or eggs, and the dam sitting upon the young or upon the eggs, thou shalt not take the dam with the young; thou shalt in any wise let the dam go, but the young thou mayest take unto thyself: that it may be well with thee, and that thou mayest prolong thy days."--Deuteronomy xxii. 6, 7. OES God take thought for birds, then? Yes, even for birds. They sow not, neither do they reap; yet our heavenly Father feedeth them. "Not one of them is forgotten before God," said the Lord Jesus Christ. And He proved that what He said is true. For He, who came to shew us the Father, Himself took thought for a single bird. In one of the Gospels we read that Jesus asked, "Are not two sparrows sold for one farthing?" and in another we read that Jesus asked, "Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings?" Two sparrows for one farthing, and five, not four, sparrows for two farthings! You see, He did not forget even the odd sparrow thrown into the bargain. Christ cared for birds, then; and therefore we may be sure that God cares for them. Not one of them, He says, can so much as fall to the ground without our Father. Think of that when you next see a lark, that has been soaring up in the sky and shaking down music like rain from the clouds, close his wings and sink suddenly into his nest. He cannot even do that, without God your Father. God has been listening to his music; and God sees him fall when his tune has been sung, just as He saw you sit down a minute or two ago when you had sung your hymn. And this God, says Jesus, is your " Father." He loves you even more than He loves the birds, and guards you with a more watchful care....
