The Bible says “Observe intently the birds of heaven; they do not sow seed or reap or gather into storehouses, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth more than they are?” (Matthew 6:26) We have all heard this before. However, a deeper analysis shows that heavenly Father Jehovah, provides the birds more than food.
The Watchtower magazine, dated July 2016, says “Jesus did not mention providing shelter for the birds of heaven, Jehovah has provided them with the instincts, skills, and materials needed to make nests for themselves.” Indeed, the birds have been given the wisdom to find safe location and materials to build their nests. Here’s one example of the resourcefulness of birds:
At the Daly City BART station, there is a flock of birds that made the place their own. Bird deterrent spikes were installed in specific spots to prevent them from perching and pooping on train commuters and information posters. The birds, in the wisdom given them, built their nest in the center of the spikes. They made use of the deterrent spikes as protection for their nest. This man made spikes’ function has been expanded to suit the God made birds’ purpose.
If the birds can speak, they’re probably saying to man:
“Outwitted by a little bird brain, hah!”
“Hey, did you guys really went to college to invent these spikes? It took me a minute to find use for it!”
“Actually, I wanted a picket fence for my nest but these spikes will do.”
Birds don’t read the Bible but I bet they’re thinking, “Jehovah provides! We got the safest nest in Daly City!”
