Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? (Matthew 6:26)
Today's Morsel: When I look out our dining room window, there always seems to be some type of bird looking in the window from the power line which runs along the back. I see robins, sparrows, doves, pigeons, ravens, and even woodpeckers. It is such a beautiful view. As I observe these fowls, they seem to not have a care in the world. Even though there is danger for them, it seems not to bother them. Jesus said, that they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Jesus wants us to know that as part of His creation, He will provide for us the same as He does those fowls. The fowls put their trust in God to provide for them. Solomon tell us, "Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths" (Proverbs 3:5-6). Paul said that God would supply all of our need (Philippians 4:19). David said that he has never seen the righteous forsaken nor his seed begging bread (Psalms 37:25). And Jesus said that it was the Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom (Luke 12:32). So the next time you observe the fowls, just know that Jesus has your best interest at heart also.
Sing: The disciples came to land, thus obeying Christ's command, He invites His chosen people come and dine. There they found their heart's desire, bread and fish upon the fire, it's so good to sup with Jesus all the time.
Come and dine the master calleth, come and dine; it's so good to sup with Jesus all the time, He who feed the multitude, turned the water into wine, to the hungry calleth now, come and dine.
