This is an oldie, but a goodie - worthy of posting for those who may not have seen it.


If you put a buzzard in a pen six feet square and open at the top, the bird (in spite of his ability to fly) will be an absolute prisoner. When a buzzard begins a flight from the ground, he always starts with a run of ten or twelve feet. Without space to run, he will not even attempt to fly, but will remain a prisoner for life in a small cage with no top.

The ordinary bat cannot take off from a level place. If a bat is placed on the floor or flat ground, all it knows to do is shuffle about helplessly until it reaches some slight elevation from which it can throw itself into the air. Then, at once, it takes off like a flash.

A bumblebee, if dropped into an empty drinking glass, will be there until it dies unless it is taken out. It never sees the means of escape at the top, but persists in trying to find some way out through the sides near the bottom. It will seek a way where none exists, until it is completely exhausted and dies.

A common flea can be put into a box or glass with a lid on it. It jumps up over and over again trying to escape only to keep bouncing back down off the lid. Pretty soon, it will stop trying to escape. Then, you can take the lid off the flea’s container and it will stay there until it dies, not realizing it could now jump out.

In many ways, there are a number of people that feel like the buzzard, the bat, the bee and the flea. They are struggling about through life, feeling trapped with all their problems and frustrations, not realizing that the answer is right there “above” them.

God is our answer. He is the one that can show us the way out. Like the need of the buzzard or bat, God can teach us ways to do things that we have never done before.
