Think about it
If you put a buzzard in a pen that is 6 feet by 8 feet and
Is entirely open at the top, the bird, in spite of its
Ability to fly, will remain a prisoner. The reason is
a buzzard always begins a flight from the ground with a
Run of 10 to 12 feet. Without space to run, as is its habit,
It will not even attempt to fly, but will remain a prisoner
For life in a small jail with no top.
e ordinary bat that flies around at night, a remarkably nimble
Creature in the air, cannot take off from a level place.
If it is placed on
the floor or flat ground,
all it can do is shuffle about helplessly and,
No doubt, painfully, until it reaches some slight
elevation from which
It can throw itself into the air.
Then, at once, it takes off like a flash.
THE BUMBLE BEE:
A bumblebee, if dropped into an open tumbler,
will be there until it dies,
Unless it is taken out.
It never sees the means of escape at the top,
But persists in trying to find some way out through
the sides near
It will seek a way where none exists,
Until it completely destroys itself.
In many ways, we are like the buzzard, the bat,
and the bumblebee.
We struggle with all our problems and frustrations,
Never realising that all we have to do is look up!
That's the answer, the escape route and the solution
To any problem!
Just look up.
Sorrow looks back, worry looks around, but faith looks up!
Live simply, love generously, care deeply,
Speak kindly and trust in our Creator who loves us.
