Bird Song

Matthew 6: 26

Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?

As I sit here working in my office, I can hear the birds happily chirping outside. They are celebrating the arrival of spring. Listening to them, the world seems so normal. They haven’t a care in the world and, apparently, haven’t heard of corona virus. If I were to turn on the television or even go to my email inbox, I would see a very different view of the world.

We are experiencing a global phenomenon unlike anything we have seen in our lifetimes or in generations. If you were to look at earth from space it might look like the human species vacated the planet. It is like some spooky science-fiction novel of post-apocalyptic earth. Thank God for His lovely birds.

The world is going on and we will overcome this. Our Father has not abandoned His beloved anymore than He has vacated the birds. He is meeting their needs daily and He loves us even more than He does the birds.

Here’s my advice to you. Listen to the birds. Go sit on your porch and watch them go about life as normal. Let them give you perspective. It will help your spirit and your faith to see life proceeding normally.

I will be out of the office all next week in study, prayer and meditation. Hence, I will not be producing the Word of the Day. Please keep each other encouraged. If you should have an emergency, leave me an email or voicemail.
