    "Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings (assarions), and not one of them is forgotten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows." An assarion was 1/10th of a drachma, and in today's market a Greek drachma is 0.0034165810711665 dollars. Five sparrows was a very poor person's dinner. None is too small to God!

    Thinking of how tiny a sparrow is and how we may not even notice them, this verse is very heartwarming. No matter how much we feel we don't matter or how small we feel, Jehovah God notice everything thing about us and he values individuals.
