Bird Struck! Robin

Family Devotional

Day Two
  
“Remain in me, and I will remain in you.” John 15:4

Robins are especially tame around people, and over the centuries many stories have grown about their friendship.

Because they like to eat grubs and earthworms, they are a favorite sight in gardens when the earth is being prepared.

Many places, especially in cold climates, watch for the robins to arrive in the spring as a sign that winter is over. It is a pleasure to have a flock of robins suddenly land in a yard, dashing back and forth from trees to land and back again. Sometimes they splash in water and sometimes fly just for fun.

They are considered to be a promise and a blessing.

Scripture is full of many promises, and we also look forward to the ones that contain blessings. They lift our spirits on dreary days, make us smile, and give us courage in difficult times.

Jesus told His disciples that He would never leave them or forsake them. Yet, then He left to be in heaven. But He sent His Holy Spirit so that no one who knows Jesus is ever alone. Another promise Jesus made is that He will come again. And sometimes we forget about this promise because it seems so far away.

But spring is always a reminder of new beginnings in creation, and robins bring that promise. So we too can watch for Jesus’ presence in His many promises.
