And Yet

“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?”

—Matthew 6:26

 

 

The bird was perched on top of the feeder, looking down as I photographed him.

I wonder what birds think about the feeders that people put out for them.

Do they understand that an actual person somehow gets all that seed and is placing it out where they can have it?

Do they wonder with amazement how an entire container of just seed happens to be near them?

Or do they just accept that it is simply there and never ponder how or why?

God provides for the birds by natural means and also by enabling humans to gather seed and generously present it in various types of feeders.

God provides for the birds.

We are worth much more than they are.

God will provide for us, too, in whatever way we need.

And when He does, do we understand and acknowledge that it is God who is providing for us?
