Walking Bird

Not too long ago, as I’m driving in my neighborhood on my way to church, I notice a bird walking on the road.


But even though I’m running late for church, this bird doesn’t seem to care! While impatiently waiting on this bird to walk across the street, I yell at the bird, “Dude, why are you walking anyway when you need to be flying? . . . If you have the capacity to fly, if you have the ability to fly, if you have the power to fly, why are you settling for walking?”


As I drive away, I realize that, unfortunately, sometimes we’re like this bird. 


Don’t settle for life on the ground when you could be flying in the air. God wants you to soar.
