Bird Struck! Hummingbirds

Family Devotional

Day Seventeen
                                               
“Jesus replied, ‘I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.’” John 6:35

All through each day hummingbirds are in constant motion. Although they are very small, they need the nectar from the flowers to keep moving. The smallest one of all is the bee hummingbird and it has to eat all day long too. Whatever it eats, it uses as fuel immediately. They are like little motors always going fast.

We don’t move as fast as the hummingbirds do, but in some ways we are always going too. We read or watch movies, sleep and dream, talk with friends, or do homework. Just being ourselves requires lots of energy to keep our bodies, our minds, and our hearts healthy and active.

“Abide in me,” Jesus said. When our bodies get hungry we feed them. When we are tired we sleep. When we lean on Jesus for our heart energy we never get empty. Sometimes when we are really physically hungry we eat snacks to fill us up quickly, but they wear off us as quickly as the hummingbirds’ nectar does.

Jesus’ fuel for our hearts never leaves us hungry or thirsty. No matter whether we are having a difficult day or a very happy one, He is listening to our thoughts and prayers. He is ready to fill us up with His personal nectar that refreshes with truth.


Action
1. For a few days keep a food diary. Write down what you eat. And also write down when you get hungry and tired.

2. Do you see any patterns between times you eat and times you are hungry?

3. Ask your parents for permission to eat only fast food for one day. How did you feel at the end of the day?

4. Then spend a day eating only healthy food. Do you see any differences?
