    I recently heard the following story of loving sacrifice.

    “The forest fire had been brought under control, and the group of firefighters were working back through the devastation making sure all the hot spots had been extinguished. As they marched across the blackened landscape between the wisps of smoke still rising from the smoldering remains, a large lump on the trail caught a firefighter’s eye.

    “As he got closer he noticed it was the charred remains of a large bird, that had burned nearly half way through. Since birds can so easily fly away from the approaching flames, the firefighter wondered what must have been wrong with this bird that it could not escape. Had it been sick or injured?

    “Arriving at the carcass, he decided to kick it off the trail with his boot. As soon as he did, however, he was startled half to death by a flurry of activity around his feet. Four little birds flailed in the dust and ash then scurried away down the hillside.

    “The bulk of the mother’s body had covered them from the searing flames. Though the heat was enough to consume her, it allowed her babies to find safety underneath. In the face of the rising flames, she had stayed with her young. Her dead carcass and her fleeing chicks told the story well enough–she gave the ultimate sacrifice to save her young.”

    “even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings” Matthew 23:37

    It is amazing to me to watch not only people, but animals, show such likeness to the nature of our Savior. It’s no wonder Christ chose to use examples of things we can relate to in His teachings.

    With the same love, care, protection, and willing sacrifice, He wants to gather you in to keep you protected from the fires, storms, and predators of life.
