The verse of the day is Psalm 119:76. May your unfailing love be my comfort, according to your promise to your servant.
I am amazed at the instinct that God has placed in His creatures. Somewhere deep in their makeup they know that they need to take care of their young. They do it persistently without giving up until their offspring are ready to fly and live on their own.
This great God who put this natural inclination deep in the heart of a little creature is the same God who cares for us. He hears us when we call, knows all our needs, and provides everything necessary to sustain life while He has a purpose for us here on earth. His compassion never fails!
I expect that in a few days the fledglings will fly away filled with strength gained from the worms and attention of their tireless parents. The same God who taught them how to care for their chicks is the same God who cares for you!
