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)

 It is said that there are about eight species of ravens in the land of Israel. They are found everywhere and are very many in that land. They are also very hungry birds, and can be fierce at times. The young ravens make a lot of noise when they are hungry. Do you know that strong hunger is described as “ravenousness”?

The Bible tells us that God takes care of their desperate need for food. Even a bird with such great appetite is well fed by God.

Job 38:41 Who provideth for the raven his food? when his young ones cry unto God, they wander for lack of meat.

Psalm 147:9 He giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry.

Luke 12:24 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?

God wants us to know that He who cares for the ravens will also care for us. Let us always thank God for the daily food He provides for us. How necessary it is that we give thanks to God for the food before we partake of it.
