2 Corinthians 1:3,4 "Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who
comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort
wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.”

Comfort is promised by God to all His troubled children. Our God is “the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort”. He is always merciful and ready to comfort the troubled...

Romans 12:10
“Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another.”

 

God expects all His children to love others. Those who genuinely love others will also show kindness and respect to them.

We must love others as God has loved us. So think about the great love that God has shown us. Because God loved us, He gave His Son to be our Saviour. Because Jesus loved us, He died for us to take away our sins and punishment. O how kind, generous and sacrificial our loving God is!

Galatians 6:2
“Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.”

Fulfilling the law of Christ must be every Christian’s delight. Jesus said, “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another” (John 13:34). The Lord Jesus Christ instructs all His people to love one another, as He has loved us.

Love is not just a sympathetic feeling expressed in words. It is more than just saying, “I love you.” True love will express itself in action...

Proverbs 3:7 advises us, “Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.”

To think to oneself that it is wisdom to act according to one’s own idea, without the fear of the Lord, is very foolish. The Bible here warns us not to act according to one’s own idea without submitting to God. We must not act without trusting God and obeying His will...

Proverbs 1:5 – “A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels.”

Everyone who desires to be wise must cultivate the habit of learning more and more. Nobody is born with full knowledge of all aspects of life. So do not think to yourself that you know everything, but always be humble and enthusiastic about learning more. Don’t be content with what you have already known. Neither should you proudly despise those whom God has placed before you to teach you, whether they be parents, pastors, teachers or friends.

We read in Proverbs 13:20, “He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.

A wise child will be careful about whom he will choose as his friends. Wise friends will make you wise, while foolish friends will bring destruction. In Proverbs, wise men are the godly people and fools are the ungodly. So, the above verse is exhorting us to develop friendships with the godly people, and to avoid any close relationship with the ungodly.

Proverbs 12:15 reminds us, “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.

Here in this verse, the main difference between a foolish person and a wise person is mentioned. A fool would not want to listen to good advice given to him, but will only do what he wants to do. He considers and believes what he thinks is always right and better. Warnings and good advice given to him by knowledgeable people are ignored

God told the Israelites (or the Jews) that they should not eat certain birds, which He has classified as “unclean” birds.

Amother hen is always very concerned about the protection of her chicks when she takes them around to teach them how to scratch and search for food. Very frequently, she will make sure that her little ones are not far from her, and will call them to her side. She knows that her little chicks are very vulnerable to predators, and will always remain on very high alert to detect any danger in the surroundings. As soon as she senses some kind of danger from predators, she will frantically let out a loud call to her chicks, which will then make an instantaneous dash towards her for safety...

Eagle that Mounts Up High - II Print E-mail

The eagle builds its nest on very high mountain peaks or at the top of the tallest trees. It lays its eggs and brings up the young ones in places that are inaccessible to man. The Lord asked His servant Job to consider whether it is a man like Job or God who gives the instinct to the eagle to make its nest so high up.

“Doth the eagle mount up at thy command, and make her nest on high? She dwelleth and abideth on the rock, upon the crag of the rock, and the strong place...

Dove: Symbol of Purity and Gentleness Print E-mail
Written by Prabhudas Koshy   
Sunday, 12 March 2017

The Bible speaks of three different kinds of doves – pigeon, dove and turtledove. The turtledoves are migratory birds that “observe the time of their coming” (Jeremiah 8:7). The Hebrew word for “dove” literally means “mourner”, hence the common expression to “mourn as a dove” (Isaiah 38:14; 59:11; Nahum 2:7). Doves found in the wild build their nests in the clefts of rocks, but the domesticated ones live in “dovecots” or the pigeonholes prepared for them in houses (Song 2:14; Jeremiah 48:28; Isaiah 60:8).

In the flood story of Genesis 6-8, Noah used the doves to see whether the flood was receding. Noah released three doves in seven-day intervals (Genesis 8:8-12). The first dove returned to Noah in the ark because the water had not receded for it to find a place of rest...

God Feeds His Servant by Ravens Print E-mail

Ravens were classified by God as unclean birds; hence Jews were forbidden from eating them (Leviticus 11:13-15; Deuteronomy 14:12-14). They were omnivorous birds which feed on grains, fruits, insects, worms, snails, small mammals and even on carcasses of birds and animals.

Ravens were noted for their voracious hunger for meat. They would attack little lambs or weak animals in the valley, and would pick out the eyes of their victims...

Ravens are birds with fluffy, black feathers (cf. Song of Solomon 5:11). They are known for their intelligence. The first mention of “raven” in the Bible is when Noah sent a raven forth from the ark (Genesis 8:7)

Jeremiah 8:7
Yea, the stork in the heaven knoweth her appointed times; and the turtle and the crane and the swallow observe the time of their coming; but my people know not the judgment of the LORD.

 

The “stork” is like the crane, but larger in size. They are large birds with long legs, toes webbed at the base, and a strong, straight, pointed bill longer than the head. Two species of the storks are found in Israel. The first species is white in colour, and they are found in pairs over the whole country. The other is black in colour, which live in marshy places and in large flocks. They migrate to Israel periodically – every year during a particular month. Psalm 104:17 refers to their nest-making habits – “Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house

Matthew 6:26
Jesus said, “Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns;
yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

 

Jesus asked us to consider the birds of the sky that we may learn to live everyday without worries and fears. Though the birds do not have the ability to sow and reap, Jesus says that God, our Father, feeds all the birds.

Now the Lord turns to us and asks, “Are ye not much better than they?” In other words, we are more precious to God than the birds. He is committed to taking care of His children more than all other creatures on earth...

Psalm 84:3
Yea, the sparrow hath found an house, and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may lay her young, even thine altars, O LORD of hosts, my King, and my God.

 

Here we have a beautiful poem or song in which a godly man talks about his joy and enthusiasm of being in God’s house. To express his feelings for God’s house, he uses two birds that he found making nests in God’s house. The birds were a sparrow and a swallow. These little birds made their nests on the altars in God’s house. The psalmist was so amazed to see how these two birds happily found rest in God’s house.

The sparrow has found a house and the swallow a nest for herself. These little birds, by the instinct and direction of nature...

Have you heard of "partridge"? It is the name of a bird; and it appears twice in the Bible. Its Hebrew name in the Old Testament is qôrē' (pronounced ko·ray). This Hebrew name means "caller". A partridge makes a very distinguished ringing call, which echoes from hill to hill in the wilderness of Judea in the early morning.

The partridge belongs to what is known as the "Gallinaceous" group of birds. Gallinaceous birds are birds with plump and heavy bodies, short tails, and short beaks that are adapted for picking up seeds. They normally live on the ground. They prefer to run, and fly only short distances.
