Bird Struck! Eagle


Family Devotional

Day Twenty-Four

“Carefully determine what pleases the Lord.” Ephesians 5:10

Eagles are among the longest living birds. They are known as faithful partners and parents. From the times of ancient history they have become a symbol of power, whether in military terms, or in legends.

However, the bald eagle is also known to steal prey from other birds. So because of this habit there were objections to it becoming the national emblem of America.

The golden eagle has neck feathers that reflect light. So they have become a symbol of rebirth.

Jesus said, “But those who do what is right come to the light so others can see that they are doing what God wants.” John 3:21

Jesus reminded His disciples that those who do not want their deeds to be seen hide in darkness.

People see our actions and make judgments on our character based on these observations. Then what we do and how we act also reflects on Jesus’ name when others know we choose to follow Him.

Eagles don’t always steal food and they don’t need to steal food to eat. They choose how to behave towards other birds.

We also make choices everyday that either highlight the light in us or the darkness we choose to hide behind.

Action
1. Pay attention to some decisions you make today. Which ones give light and which one are dark?

2. What reasons did you have for making those choices?

3. Which ones do you think would please Jesus? Why?
