Wesley's Notes for Matthew 10:29


10:29-30 The particular providence of God is another reason for your not fearing man. For this extends to the very smallest things. And if he has such care over the most inconsiderable creatures, how much more will he take care of you, (provided you confess him before men, before powerful enemies of the truth,) and that not only in this life, but in the other also? #Luke 12:7|.


People's Bible Notes for Matthew 10:29


Mt 10:29 Two sparrows. Among the smallest and least valuable birds, yet under the Divine care. So cheap as to be offered in pairs for an insignificant coin, but God notes the fall of one.

Discussion for Matthew 10

  • Rhonda Dotson
    If a person strives for his life in the world, he will find that the world does not offer "the life", and will lose it. But if he gives up searching the world for his life for the sake of Jesus Christ, he will find 'the life". Because The Life is in Jesus Christ.

    I don't care what it takes I will follow and trust in God for the rest of my life on this earth even if people try to kill me I will still stand strong cause he has been too good to me to just turn my back on him

    To:A Disciple, I agree with Emanuel Fernandes. There is nothing wrong with watching sports as long as it does not keep you from God. If you are watching when you should be at church, THAT'S WHEN YOU SHOULD FEEL ASHAMED. By the way "A DISCIPLE" are you a Catholic or what?
