  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    By Jean S. Horner

July 12, 2010 - God Knows You

By Hal Donaldson

A friend asked recently, “Do you really believe God pays attention to every detail of our lives?”

Knowing he had not committed his life to Christ, I took the opportunity to share Luke 12:6,7: “Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten by God. Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows” (NIV).

“Then,” he asked with a hint of doubt, “I suppose you believe everything happens in our lives for a reason?”

“You can go to extremes with that belief — like blaming God if you have a bad hair day — but, yes, He is engaged with every significant aspect of our lives. The Bible says He knows us from our mother’s womb until we are laid in the grave. All things work together for good for those who follow Christ, and that’s because He’s watching over us every moment of every day.”

That led to a brief discussion about what it means to be a follower of Jesus. (I’m confident it’s only a matter of time before my friend surrenders his life to Christ.)
