Bird Struck! Pink Flamingos

Family Devotional

Day Sixteen
                                                           
“For he satisfies the thirsty, and fills the hungry with good things.” Psalm 107: 9

What color would you like to be today? If you knew that eating blueberries would turn you blue, or lemons yellow, or peanut butter brown, what would you choose for your breakfast?

Pink flamingos stand out in a crowd of birds. Sometimes they are also red or orange but they are best known for being pink. The interesting part is that without a particular substance of carotenoid in their diet they will be plain white. They can get the carotenoid from eating shrimp and algae. Some captured flamingos are also given carrots and beets in their diet to help them maintain their colors.

“You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had” (Philippians 2:5).

We can show our colors each day by the words we use, even when we don’t talk. A scowl shows grumpy colors. A smile is friendly. Sometimes we can change another person’s colors by acting with kindness.

Jesus said, “Do to others as you would like them to do to you.”

What kind of spiritual food might help us change our dull hearts to beautiful hearts?

Action
1. Make a list of colors you think would be fun to be for a day.

2. Write down actions that show how nice that color can be.

3. Choose one of the actions to practice for a week, or try a different one each day.
