Bird Struck! Penguin

Family Devotional

Day Ten

“No one will be able to stand against you as long as you live. For I will be with you, as I was with Moses. I will not fail you or abandon you.” Joshua 1:5

We often think of penguins living in ice and snow and harsh conditions. But many penguin species live in regular climates. Only three species endure the severe Antarctic environment.

The movie March of the Penguins showed just how extreme their physical struggle is. These penguins endure amazing hardships to protect their eggs and newborn chicks. They are faithful in the very worst physical conditions we can imagine.

Although we rarely have to experience such difficult physical conditions we often have emotional and relationship problems.

Jesus promises never to leave us or forsake us. He remains faithful no matter what the conditions are, even if we are in harsh circumstances because of our own fault. When we tell Him the truth, He forgives us. Then He helps us to bear up under the consequences of our actions.

And just as He remains faithful to us in all our circumstances and protects us, so we can be faithful to our family and friends too.

Every one has had days when we need each other to stay around us and help. All the penguins gather in a large circle to protect everyone’s eggs.

Jesus surrounds us with His love and the love of family and friends for our protection.


Actions
1. Make a list of all the ways your family protects each other.

2. Every day for a week, do one of these things for a friend or classmate without them knowing.

3. Or pray for this type of protection for someone you know who needs it.
