Bird Food

Did you know that all birds do not eat the same kind of bird food? Some birds don’t even eat birdseed! Woodpeckers prefer to eat suet cakes as opposed to plain birdseed. Finches don’t like plain birdseed either. They prefer thistle seed or black oil sunflower seeds. Hummingbirds and orioles prefer to eat bugs, and they also like sweet treats like grape jelly, nectar, and orange slices. Crows and ravens prefer not to go to the bird feeder at all. Instead, they prefer to eat from a compost pile, or they will sometimes eat nuts scattered on the ground. God created each bird a little bit differently, and He knows them all personally. He knows what they like and want to eat. He puts them in areas of the world where they can get it. They don’t have to worry about where they’re going to eat. What do you worry about? Do you worry if you will have enough to eat, pass the test, or have someone to sit with at lunch? It’s normal to worry about some things, but it’s what we do with our worry that matters. We need to take all of our worries to Jesus, who is God the Son. He knows what we need and wants us to depend on Him. We can come to Him first with our problems, believing He is loving, trustworthy, and good. In today’s Bible passage, Jesus talks about how God the Father takes care of the birds and makes sure their needs are met. In turn, He will take care of us, His people. Just like different birds eat different kinds of food, each Christian has different needs. God knows each of us personally and will provide for our needs. We can trust Him to care for us and to make every wrong right in the end, knowing He is with us no matter what we face. • Melissa Yeagle • What are some of your needs right now?
