This paraphrase from the Sermon on the Mount moves and soars like the birds it pictures. Its instruction is gentle but firm, reminding us of what we know but always seem to forget: we can safely put our trust in God.
Sing! A New Creation
This song speaks about looking and learning from God’s creation, particularly the flowers and the birds. Heidelberg Catechism, Lord’s Day 10, Questions and Answers 27 and 28 profess that we learn to have “good confidence in our God and Father…for all creatures are so completely in his hand that without his will they can neither move nor be moved.” Belgic Confession, Article 13 testifies that we may trust that God watches over us with such fatherly care that not “even a little bird can fall to the ground without the will of our father.”
