Deut 21-22 God cares for the insignificant and the mighty. God cares for the little birds, and He cares for the women. In all of this, the principle is: That it may be well with you and that you may prolong your days.

Today, our young people face many challenges. All that is happening today is mocked as the “old-fashioned” ways, yet if we look carefully, we can see the reasons God placed these in his Word. The most vulnerable (the birds and the women) are placed side by side. God is saying; as I care for the least, so shall you do.  

There are two reasons for this: 1. obedience to the smallest is His command that brings blessing, and 2. kindness to the least carries over the greatest, and the contrast is true as well. Kindness is a Fruit of the Spirit, and God calls us to emulate that virtue to the smallest, the least, as well as to the greatest.
