For The Birds

robinA couple of days ago I saw my first robin of the season. A few minutes later three deer ran through our yard. I love life here in the country. Well, except for the lack of high speed internet and cell phone access. In any case, all of the signs that Spring is here are all around us.

As I watched the robin I was reminded that God provides for the birds. However, most of the time the robins food is on the ground. Think about that. God provides the food but has it on the ground. Being on the ground is not where a bird likes to spend time. While he is on the ground he is in the most dangerous place a bird can be. He would be safer in a bush or a tree and really safe up in the sky.

Matthew 6:26

So why would God make the bird stand on the ground to get its� food? Why would He make the bird get totally out of his comfort zone in order to get his food?

I think it is to show the bird that he can trust God. The bird has to trust God for the food but also for the protection while he is on the ground getting it. OK, so what about the bird that get caught by a cat? Well, I guess God provides food for cats too.

Matthew 10:29

Luke 12:6

Remember, the early bird gets the worm but the second mouse gets the cheese.

When we look around, we see a lot of people who are really worried. They are worried about their jobs, about their house payment and about the Visa bill. Birds have bills but they keep on singing. They don�t seem to worry. God loves us even more than He does the birds.

Matthew 10:31

Luke 12:7

Many years ago I came across this poem. I don�t have any idea who wrote it but I think it says a lot to all of us during these times.

Overhead In The Orchard

Said the robin to the sparrow
ââ?¬Å?I should really like to know
Why those anxious human beings
Rush about and worry so.�

Said the sparrow to the robin,
ââ?¬Å?Friend, I think that it must be
That they have no Heavenly Father
Such as cares for you and me.�

Worry is for the birds and they even refuse to do it.
