Word of the Day 1; Matthew 11:28

Word of the Day 1

I went over to the chicken coops to give our chickens some leftover fruit. When I passed the chicken coops one by one I noticed that in the last coop there was a cardinal. This cardinal was apparently female judging by the soft brown feathers. As I saw its mouth open in a thirsty, tired, and hot manner I immediately felt sorry for this poor creature. I thrust the chicken coop door open and stood on the opposite side of the cage (where I discovered the bird) in order to scare it threw the open door. This cardinal obviously did not get the idea. Instead of flying out the door (which I thought he was sure to do) he flew around on the opposite sides of the cage hitting everything in its way. It was pretty sad to see her flying around and slowly losing her strength. It made me think about us. How quickly we are to turn away from the open door God has providentially opened for us. We are hungry and thirsty for something more than what the world has to offer. Sometimes we are even blinded by the indulgences of the world and cannot see that we are hungry and thirsty, consequently we don't see that open door. I could only provide freedom from the cage to this bird,but God can provide much more for his children.

Matthew 11:28
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
