little flock

When i saw this fluffy little flock of sparrows hunched together in the snowstorm i was reminded of a conversation i had with a friend last week. She was telling me about how much she enjoys observing birds and how they spark her imagination. …”especially,” she said, “seeing them lined up on buildings or wires… they scoot down for one another to make a space”. She said she could imagine what they were saying to each other. 

It made me think of a scripture passage from the book of Luke:

“I tell you,” Jesus said, “do not be anxious about your life….consider the birds, they neither sow nor reap, they have neither storehouse nor barn, and yet God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds…..and who of you by worrying can add one cubit to his span of life?

       …..Fear not little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.” 

P.S. Being a part of a flock is a really good thing. :)
