Sparry the sparrow shook away the dizziness, checked her nest and found all three eggs survived. She heard a toddler crying; his nurse was lying motionless under a large branch.
Sparry’s mom taught her that God cared for her even though she was considered of little worth. Mom also said God loved people so much, He even knew how many hairs they had on their heads. She said people had eternal souls is the reason God loved them so much.
If mom was right why is the child crying; why is nurse not responding; why doesn’t someone come to help?
John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome. the world.”
Friends, our goal is to have peace, not trouble, in the next world. It won’t happen here. But faith and prayer make things easier.

Why indeed. God needs someone else to do his work, perhaps.
You are right. We need to be looking out for opportunities to help one another.
Why is the child crying? Great scripture to go with this. Blessings.
Thank you, Michael. We so often react to crying children with the attitude “I can’t do anything about it” then we give the problem over to government which results in more crying children.
Questions ever winging on the wind. Blessings.
Yes, we will never find the answer. Jesus said “the poor will always be with us.” I guess that is true of the crying child. But it does not resolve the issue of my responsibility to do what I can.
What a lovely story.
No matter how much we learn to trust God for these big questions, they always remain. That is why He says to lean not to our own understanding. If he told us, we would still not understand. We cannot conceive of His ways. Thanks for the comment, Sandra.
