Lesson From the Birds

Outside of the building, I saw a woman watching a small bird walk along the ledge that is in front.  Her curiosity got the better of me so I began to watch the bird along with her.  She said that there must be something wrong with him because he wasn’t flying.

She was right.  Upon closer examination, I saw that one of his wings did not look right – it was fluffy and there were small feathers sticking out of it.  Eventually, he made it to the ground, and after several attempts he could not fly back up to the ledge.  All of a sudden, another bird flew down from the sky and went up to the little injured bird.  He flew up and down for about 5 minutes, each time landing right next to the injured one as if to try to teach it how to fly.

As they were engaging in this, the woman next to me said, “Doesn’t this just go to show you that you are not alone in this world?”  I replied that it really does.

God really is amazing.  And even when we think we are alone, we are not because God is always there with us.  It reminds me of the Biblical quote that says, “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?” (Matthew 6:26).

I thought that the words of the woman were so beautiful, I just had to pass the message along.  We really are never alone.
