Overheard in an Orchard
Said the Robin to the Sparrow
“I would really like to know,
why these anxious human beings.
rush about and worry so.’
Said theSparrow to the Robin
“I think that it must be,
they have no Heavenly Father ,
such as cares for you and me”.
by Elizabeth Cheney
When you think about it, it`s like eavesdropping on a conversation between two birds in an orchard. In a sense you could say it`s like the dropping of a small seed of truth,about the nature of a Loving and caring God. This will grow into a mighty tree of knowledge, of the unchanging faithfulness of God.
Once we surrender ourselves to that Truth we will never doubt, or care nor worry about tomorrows provision. Jesus said Himself …
Matthew 6 .26-33 abridged. ‘Look at the birds of the air, they do not sew, nor reap, nor gather into barns, yet your Heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they .? Therefore do not worry saying ,what shall we eat, what shall we drink. But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added to you .”
That`s the injunction I need to be reminded of again and again, come to think of it, if two little birds know the Truth, what`s wrong with me ???
Luke 17:20-22 And when He was demanded of the Pharisees, when the Kingdom of God should come, He answered them and said, The Kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the Kingdom of God is within you.
The Kingdom of God is within us and God said search for me with all your heart and you will find me.
