A boy was seated under a tree very thirsty and he needed water but there was no water. Suddenly he saw some drops of water dripping from the tree. He took a cup and started tapping the drops. When water got to half the cup and he was ready to drink, a bird came and knocked the cup down so the water poured. It happened three times and the boy felt very bad. He took a stone and killed the bird.
After the bird had died, he saw a big snake coming down from the tree. So he discovered that what he wanted to drink was not really water but poison. He felt so guilty that he had killed the bird that saved his life.
Some times God is like this bird to us. He knows when we are about to take poison but we get so bitter with him when he is trying to help us. May be what you thought was water was poison. Drop the pain because there is better for you.
Lord help me today to see all the birds around me who keep on kicking the poisonous cups. Keep My eyes open and senses sharpened so I can safely rest your arms in Jesus name. Amen
