BE CAREFUL

I just love it up here!

 

Have you ever seen the birds congregate on the high voltage power lines?  It always amazed me when I was younger as to how they never got electrocuted.  Supposedly they are okay since they are only perching on one line at a time.  If they were to touch both the ground wire and the high voltage wire at the same time, well that would be it folks! We would have an early Fourth of July on the high wires.

The birds that gather together on those wires are what they call communal birds who like to hang out together and visit with one another.  Their feet wrap around those wires just perfect. Way up high they have a clear view of any predators that may try to attack them. Cats have a real hard time climbing up that high for a snack.  There are no leaves and branches in their way and they can see all around for miles. They can also spot some good food sources from the wires and the sun tends to warm up the wires so they can be pretty nice to sit on sometimes.

We need to be like those little birds in our own life.  There is a devil that prowls around like a big cat looking for someone to eat up. So look all around you, keep your eyes open, and be ready for any tricks that he may try to play on you in this life.

1 Peter 5:8 NIV

“Be alert and of sober mind.  Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.”

    Amen! I think the birds would rather risk to be electrocuted than be devoured by a predator 😉 Nevertheless, the Lord in heaven is watching over these sparrows!
