"Stop trusting in human beings, whose life breath is in their nostrils, for what are they really worth?"
How much more is a human being worth than a sheep! So it is lawful to do good on Sabbath days."
"What is a human being, that you make so much of him; that you set your affections on him,
what is man that you take notice of him, or the son of man that you pay attention to him?
LORD, what are human beings, that you should care about them, or mortal man, that you should think about him?
Instead, someone has declared somewhere, "What is man that you should remember him, or the son of man that you should care for him?
So stop being afraid. You are worth more than a bunch of sparrows."
Why, even all the hairs on your head have been counted! Stop being afraid. You are worth more than a bunch of sparrows."
Consider the crows. They don't plant or harvest, they don't even have a storeroom or barn, yet God feeds them. How much more valuable are you than birds!
Though the precious people of Zion were like fine gold, how they are valued like clay vessels, the handiwork of a potter!
I tell all of you with certainty, among those born of women no one has appeared who is greater than John the Baptist. Yet even the least important person in the kingdom from heaven is greater than he.
I tell you, no one has ever been born who is greater than John. Yet even the least important person in the kingdom of God is greater than he."
