This photo is the latest at our house. We have a bird feeder right outside of the window which is getting plenty of attention and not just from the birds.
Discovering the feeder through the big window for her (the cat) was like having her treats and Salmon and Crab Meat dinner all at once.
Of course the event becomes more exciting with the window opened. She sits and listens to the birds chirping; some are quite loud. She has yet to figure out why they are so close to her. My husband commented,
“When she starts tearing the screen to get to a bird, it will be time to shut the window.”
While I was trying to get a decent picture which was difficult due to the lighting outside, she sat perfectly still staring at the bird. After a good long while she turned around and peered at me as if to ask,
“Can I get that bird?” or “is it ok if I grab the little tweet and leave it on the doorstep?”
The cat has no idea there is a barrier between her and the bird. For all she knows all she has to do is jump on the ledge and treat herself to a fine feathered…..well, you get the idea.
Observing her in this position reminds me of many people.
Human nature in its selfish state is like a barrier to the abundance waiting us.
Our efforts to reach beyond to get what we want are useless without removing the fences of self-reliance and independent spirit.
More than ever our society is filled with individuals wandering aimlessly around in their self-created 40 year wilderness. They, like the cat have no idea they are visionless to the transparent glass in front of them.
It may take quite a few hits before they realize the bird is on the other side impossible to reach from where they stand.
So it is with the truth.
We would rather get beat up by a piece of glass we can’t see instead of walking around to the other side where vision is paramount and prosperity is real.
This modern day prevalence is hindering nations of lost souls from seeing Jesus. His name has become a bad word; or a source of indifference. And people wonder why it all looks like it is falling apart.
Jesus is the vision through the transparent glass.
Jesus is our bounty and plenty.
Jesus is the way out of any wilderness; self-created or otherwise.
Whether you are inside looking out or outside looking in, it doesn’t matter.
Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.
And that is crystal clear.
