I was recently at my In-laws watching the Hummingbirds at the feeder. I began to think about how many calories it must take to keep a bird like that strong and healthy. A Hummingbird must consume 11/2 to three times their weight in nectar or insects per day!
This means that they are continually eating in order to keep up the strength to flee from from danger. I began to think about the example that this provides me as a Christian.
If I get busy and put off feeding myself spiritually I can get week and vulnerable to temptation. Life is busy and we need to make sure that we are feeding ourselves spiritually or when the danger of temptation comes we will become it’s prey.
However if we are feeding ourselves spiritually like we should, then we will be able to flee when we need to.
If we make God’s word and prayer a priority; we will be strong and healthy Christians.
Here is a video I took on my digital camera of the hummingbirds feeding I thought you might enjoy.
