Are not two little sparrows sold for a penny? And yet not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father’s leave (consent) and notice….Fear not, then; you are of more value than many sparrows. (Matthew 10:29, 31 AMP)
In honor of World Sparrow Day, which was March 20th, today we can enjoy the Lord’s creation of His Sparrows.
Sparrows belong to two families; the Passeridae – Old World Sparrows, Snowfinches and the Emberizidae – Buntings, New World Sparrows & Allies. The photos in the slideshow is from both of these families. Scripture doesn’t divide them and neither are we.

Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? And not one of them is forgotten before God. Why, even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not; you are of more value than many sparrows. “And I tell you, everyone who acknowledges me before men, the Son of Man also will acknowledge before the angels of God, (Luke 12:6-8 ESV)
