Did you know that the average person has between 85,000 and 150,000 hairs on his or her head? Matthew 10:30 states, “And even the very hairs on your head are all numbered.” God knows how many hairs that every person on earth has on his or her head. No one escapes his notice. No one is unimportant. No one is unloved.
This Bible verse points out two things—how amazing our God is that even our most minute details don’t escape his insight and how much he cares about each and every one of us.
Next time you brush your hair, look in the mirror and try to count how many hairs you have. Even if you shave your head, I bet you’ll lose count of those tiny hairs popping up in less than a minute. Take some time to thank your heavenly Father for caring so much for you.
Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?” — Matthew 6:26-27, NIV
