Jesus (Matt 10:20) says, “the very hairs of your head are numbered!” I’ve heard folks poke fun at that statement by referring to God’s “hair-counters,” pointing out how ridiculous it is to literally believe the Bible.  Joking about keeping count of a new hair or a lost hair.

Many are kinder.  They think it is just a legitimate exaggeration.  Poetic license used to prove a point.

But I say Jesus may have been giving a very scientific statement.  That Jesus, the Creator, is also a master scientist.   Science has finally caught up with “numbered hair” in the last decade or so.  What he said was proven by what science has discovered regarding deoxyribonucleic acid—DNA!

Don’t we all have genes that show whether we will have thick hair, thin hair, or maybe be bald? Wouldn’t that be marked by a DNA number? **

I’m not smart enough to understand all that, but makes sense to me. I get a thrill out of knowing God designed all the little details of our bodies. How beautifully and wonderfully made, we are!

Luke 12:7  But even the hairs of your head all have been numbered. Fear not; you are more valuable than many sparrows.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

  1. You are right, Oneta. I had my DNA tested by 23andMe and they were able to tell me, based on my DNA, the probable color and thickness of my hair, and whether it is straight or curly!

  2. I always took Jesus literally on that statement, about our hairs all being counted.
    God is very detail-oriented.🤗

      sallyball8323, you are certainly right that God is very detail-oriented. His statement surely does show that he cares and knows about each of us. But I just love to show how slow science is in catching up sometimes. 😀 Thanks for the comment.

    Wow! Thanks for that personal confirmation. Time tells about our Creator to all who are not choosing to be blinded.

    Science – the Bible – Thank you for your post. In more recent times I believe Science is beginning to prove more and more of biblical truth. Just like old Testament stories which once were taught as myths are coming to light as TRUTH. Our God is simply BIGGER than all human minds can ‘box’ in.

    Depends on who the folks are, and what they understand about anything. Not everyone that thinks they know have an understanding what they think they know or are talking about.
