even doves know

White-winged-dove

Word: Even the stork in the sky knows the seasons set out for her, and the dove, the swift and the thrush known when to migrate. But my people do not know what the Lord requires. (Jeremiah 8:7)
Wonder:  Do you know what the Lord requires of you? Do your actions show it? Is your life built around knowing what the Lord requires of you?

One thought on “even doves know

  1. Yes.
    Yes.
    Yes.
    I hope so.
    The last question can be hard to answer for yourself. You never know just how you look through someone else’s eyes. I find myself constantly re-reading Romans 7 and 8. My soul desires to do one thing but the flesh always seems to interfere. That can really wear on a spiritually minded person. But to hear Paul say that he is convinced that nothing can separate us from the love of Christ is like a breath of fresh air. Like the bird, it is in our nature to know what we should do. However, we are too intelligent for our own good. We use a rationalization process that draws us away from God instead of following our natural calling towards Him. In a sense, the most intelligent life forms on earth are also the dumbest. Why can’t we follow our hearts? I may never understand it, so I thank God for the grace and mercy found in Christ Jesus.
