Feeding

Mt 6:26 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?

 

We’ve been watching mocking birds out our front door.  They built a nest in our trellis and laid 4 eggs.  We watched as all 4 birds came out of their shells.  We watched mom and dad fly back and forth feeding them.  We saw one pushed out of the nest, dead and watch the remaining 3 grow and pull out their fuzz as their feathers came in.  Today I took a photo of one of the babies on the edge of the nest.  Later on we looked and the nest was empty.  We searched our yard but could not find them.  Then we heard them.  They were hopping around trying to find places to hide.  As we watched we watched their parents call to them and bring food to wherever they were.  God will feed us wherever we are.  We just need to open our hearts and minds as these baby birds open their beaks for the food from their parents.  God will feed us through the Bible as we read and meditate on it, through our church services as we gather together to worship Him and encourage each other, through the small groups each of us should be in to grow more deeply and through our own prayer and meditation time.  Are you being fed?
