Nature’s Lessons

It’s the battle of the hummingbirds. They intimidate the butterflies and the bees when they swoop in on the flowers in my garden, but their aggressive nature defeats them. When more than one hummingbird shows up they spend most of their time dive bombing and chasing each other than attending to the flowers. This gives the butterflies and bees plenty of time to gather their nectar. We can look to nature’s beauty and be inspired by God’s glorious creation, and we can also learn from its negative aspects. As Paul wrote to the Galatians: “If you bite and devour each other, watch out or you will be destroyed by each other” (Gal. 5:15, NIV). Let’s heed the apostle’s words and live in unity in Christ.

  1. I have watched those hummingbird battles. Their aren’t as many here as in California, so less battles. Thanks for the reminder Sheila!
