So I am wondering, “Am I the worm? Or am I the robin?” Jesus tells us in that we shouldn’t worry about thing’s of this life. Consider the lily, consider the birds of the air. They don’t fret about the need’s of today. Why should we.
Jesus Saying, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?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?
I was sitting at Dr Reed’s office not long ago and I watched as the robins enjoyed eating the worms that was still on the surface of the grass, before escaping from the heat of the day. Robin birds pulls on this worm and gulps it down. I of course am reminded of Jesus telling us that this bird did not live the day before worrying if there was food for the next. Jesus tells us that the bird doesnt even plant a harvest let alone reap one. But I got to thinking, the worm had the lack of same thought. You see the worm didnt awake and know that he would be breakfast. Let me get to my point. Are we as Christian’s used to be a blessing or do we take the blessing. The worm gave of himself to be a blessing (he gave all to the point of death) and the bird took the blessing that God provided for it. So again wich one are we? Do go around expecting to be blessed as the robin was expecting the worm to be there, or do we give when we don’t plan on it so that others may be blessed. Are we the worm or the robin?
