Comprehensive, Watchful Love

When Jesus spoke of the hairs of our heads being numbered, he was pointing to a kind of watchful love that is so comprehensive that a single hair cannot fall from our scalps without his permission (Matthew 10:30). How then could we ever imagine that God would leave the great and mighty business of our spiritual growth up to weak and sinful people like us?  Surely the matter of which sins we will and won’t commit is far more important to God than the number of hairs that we can call our own on any given day.
