Lauryn Hill & Tanya Blount | “His Eye Is On The Sparrow”

One of my favorite movies is Sister Act. There was a second installment that was not a good as the first but, still showcased some really good music. One of those songs is performed by two of the students portrayed by Tanya Blount and Lauryn Hill. They sing “His Eye is on the Sparrow.”

It is a remarkable rendition of a beautifully written song. I was listening to it the other night and really paid attention to the words. It is a reflection on the words found in scripture in a couple of places including the following words by Jesus.

29 Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground apart from your Father. 30 But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows. (Matthew 10:29-31)

It is a wonder that we lose sight of this tender oversight offered to us by God. I was reminded of this this weekend and I though you could you a reminder as well.
