Spiritual Thoughts on a Bird's Nest
I was out pruning the Bradford Pear trees that line my yard this afternoon and discovered this nest and these eggs hidden in the branches.
It reminded me of two things:
1. The work of church planting (and parenting, for that matter). Building a nest. Nurturing growth. Patient waiting for God's timing.
2. God's providential care for his saints. "He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust" (Psalm 91:4).
