Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

Looking to steal?

looking to steal?

This gull is looking for an opportunity
to steal food from the unwary.

We had some fries at the beach.
My wife was holding one on a toothpick
in front of her and was distracted
a moment by something occurring
in front of her.

In that short time a gull
brushed by my daughter's hair,
grabbed the morsel...
toothpick and all from my wife's fingers
and was gone. We neither saw it coming
or leaving... so fast it occurred.

The bird did not know better...
it was simply looking for food...
something it learned from others
who unwisely fed the birds before.

We, on the other hand, do know better
and have the knowledge of good and evil.

Remove far from me falsehood and lies;
give me neither poverty nor riches;
feed me with the food that is needful for me,
Lest I be full and deny You and say,
Who is the Lord?
Or lest I be poor and steal,
and so profane the name of my God.”

- Proverbs 30:8,9 AMP
