I spotted an unusually colored Muscovy Duck on the water, but realized it was a juvenile.
Many of the ducks we watch have a way of rocking or strutting when they swim. Recently, I recorded a young or juvenile Muscovy Duck swimming on the water out back.
They remind me of the Pharisees and Sadducee that we read about during the time Christ was on earth and during New Testament times.
“Then the high priest rose up, and all those who were with him (which is the sect of the Sadducees), and they were filled with indignation,” (Acts 5:17 NKJV)
“Then the Lord said to him, “Now you Pharisees make the outside of the cup and dish clean, but your inward part is full of greed and wickedness.” (Luke 11:39 NKJV)
“Woe to you Pharisees! For you love the best seats in the synagogues and greetings in the marketplaces.” (Luke 11:43 NKJV)
Also, a few verses from the both testaments:
“Pridegoes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before a fall.” (Proverbs 16:18 NKJV)
“For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.” (1 John 2:16 NKJV)
I know there are many more verses that could be added, but I am sure you can also even quote some of them. These ducks are not prideful, but the Lord had a way of putting natures in His Avian Wonders to help remind us of attitudes to avoid. Blessings!
Muscovy Ducks are part of the Anatidae Family of Ducks, Geese and Swans
