The Buzzard – August 30.2011


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 be an absolute
prisoner. The  reason is  that 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.

THE BAT:  The ordinary bat that flies around  at night, a remarkable  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 BUMBLEBEE: 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 the bottom. It will  seek a way where  none exists, until it completely destroys ;itself.

PEOPLE:  In many ways, we are like the buzzard,  the bat, and the  bumblebee. We struggle about with all our  problems and  frustrations, never realizing 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
