Wisdom From The Animals: Day 15

kookaburra

Wisdom From The Animals: Day 15

In the1930s, Marion Sinclair’s Kookaburra Song was written and performed to the tune of an old Welsh song. This song teaches children that kookaburras laugh. You’ve probably heard a kookaburra and didn’t realize it. Their distinctive call has been used as a sound effect in movies to imitate the sound of monkeys. The kookaburra, known as the “bushman’s alarm clock,” calls out specifically at dawn and dusk.

“Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations,’The LORD has done great things for them.’ The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.” Psalm 126:2,3

I hope your day is filled with much joy and laughter.

Wisdom From The Animals: Day 14

meerkat

Wisdom From The Animals: Day 14

For meerkats, family is important whether the family member is biological or not. These affectionate and social creatures recognize each other’s voices and depend on one another for survival. The African proverb, “It takes a village to raise a child,” applies to the meerkats because they look after and babysit each other’s children. 

“You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:26-28

I was fortunate in my childhood years that I spent time with my extended family. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve discovered that others didn’t experience the same upbringing. I didn’t realize how special those times were because those times were my normal. Family was highly valued. When I became a Christian, I entered into a different family that included people not related to me by blood. Those who didn’t experience family bonding growing up became part of my faith family. I value them as much as I do my biological family. All of us as children of God are raising one another up to a mature faith.

Wisdom From The Animals: Day 12

chimps

Wisdom From The Animals: Day 12

Chimpanzees share more than 98 percent of our genetic blueprint. They are very intelligent, can be trained to perform a variety of tasks, have opposable thumbs to help them grasp or grab things, and they use or make tools to get food. And surprisingly, a chimp named Ham was the first “American” in space. Ham was used to help test space travel for human astronauts. He orbited the Earth in 1961.

“For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10

Like chimpanzees, we were also given certain capabilities by God. Capabilities that are inherent to humans that help us perform tasks, make decisions, and other things. But in Christ, we have been given additional tools unique to each of us to perform and fulfill the work that He wants us to do. Our responsibility is to discover what that work is and do it.
