“His Eye is on the Sparrow”

         Tevya in “Fiddler on the Roof” while talking to God about his dilemmas, pauses and comments that while he realizes that God is busy with wars and famines and all those things that bring people together, could God, while he is the neighborhood, help his lame horse.  I love it.  Often I am tempted to think of God as being “in the neighborhood” but busy with world events that draw people to him.  Behind the reports in Matthew this week that highlight issues of who is first and who is last when his kingdom comes, is that niggling question, “Does God see me and my life?”  Jesus affirms that God sees each of us and rewards 100 fold.  It is a core truth that is hard to hold on to when we are struggling.  So I turned to this favorite hymn sung by Ethel Waters that affirms that a God who watches sparrows, sees even me!  Please enjoy this affirmation this morning.
