The hairs on my head

In the midst of teaching us to not worry or fear, Jesus says the most amazing thing..."Even the hairs of your head are all counted." (Matthew 10:30 NRSV)

Does God really keep a tally of the hairs on my head? Even the ones left in the shower drain or hairbrush?

I don't know if Jesus was speaking literally or not. But I'm quite sure he's making a very clear point...God loves and cares about me.

This is a very important message for me to hear today...not because I plan on losing hair, but because I don't know what this new year holds. As I step into 2008, I can relax in the hands of a God who cares about my life--probably more than I realize.
