As my daughter drove up, she said a vulture was eating a dead squirrel by my mailbox. It’s not every day I see a vulture devouring road kill in my neighborhood, but there it was down at the edge of my yard by the road. When a car drove by, the big black bird would move away a few yards, but then return to its meal. It’s kind of gross to watch but it’s the balance in nature God designed. Vultures, among other scavengers, were designed to clear away the dead. They don’t have a choice in the matter. That’s what they do and they’re content with how God made them. As humans we have purpose too. We are God-designed for love, for him to love and for us to love him and our neighbor. But unlike the vultures, we have a choice.
