Colorful Gapes…   ~ by a j mithra



Hey Kids,
Welcome to the colorful world of Bird.
I know you guys and gals love birds
and that too colorful birds..
But, I wonder how many really know
why God gave colorful gapes for chicks?
May be some of you would love to know the reason, right?
Here we go… Check this out..

The mother bird understands
whether her chicks need food or not
from the colors of their gapes.
Similarly, the chick recognises its mother in this way
and understands that the food has arrived.
As seen in these examples in nature,
living beings need to know the meaning of colors
in order to survive.
They also need to possess proper systems of perception..
As kids you too should know the meaning of colors..
Whenever you see RED,
think of the blood that Jesus shed for you and me
on the cross of Calvary..
Whenever you see WHITE,
Think of the Holy Spirit who is willing
to intercede for us..
Whenever you see YELLOW,
think of the golden lanes of heaven,
where you and I would walk with our Lord Jesus…
When you see ORANGE,
think of the eternal fire in hell,
that would consume all sinner..

Though ye have lien among the pots, yet shall ye be as the wings of a dove covered with silver, and her feathers with yellow gold (Psalm 68:13)

Yours in YESHUA,
a j mithra
