We watch birds, yet we too are being watched!
Dr. James J. S. Johnson
This is a blog-site about birdwatching. Yet don’t forget that we ourselves are being watched, so be on your best behavior! (Consider 1st Corinthians 4:9, quoted above.)
Once I watched a hummingbird, displaying its marvelous metabolism, that busily slurped nectar from trumpet vines that grow upon my backyard’s fence. The hovering, buzzing, flitting, iridescent-sparkling hummingbird was too busy to notice me!
Yet, come to think of it, there are times when I am so busy that I don’t notice others watching me — and sometimes (according to 1st Corinthians 4:9) even angels are watching. All the more reason to be on my best behavior.
However, even if only God is watching, that’s the best reason for doing what is right, to honor Him (1st Corinthians 10:31).
Meanwhile, enjoy watching the birds! May God bless your new year: the year of our Lord 2020. This year is God’s gift — let’s walk through it reverently and appreciatively.
