Mustard Seed Moment:
What’s in your Feeder?
Based on Psalm 84
My father fed the birds for my whole lifetime. I cannot recall a time he did not have six different bird feeders up in the backyard. Each feeder had a certain style and design and was stocked with a certain seed to attract certain birds. He had thistle seed for the yellow finch, safflower seed for the royal cardinals, broken peanuts chips for the nuthatches, and the list goes on and on. A certain kind of seed and feed to attract a certain type of bird.
However, in the middle of the lawn, under the branches of the crabapple tree, he had one big tube feeder that had the “mixed” seed in it. That was for any bird to consider. It was the busiest of the feeders in the backyard. Does your backyard have one such feeder?
This summer we will ponder the “birds” that congregate in our backyard. Come and join me in this insightful series of gathering the flock together for the good of the Christian community. Are we like a cute bird, dirty bird, angry bird or a yellow Big Bird? Come and see how the birds flock, gaggle together.
Sincerely, Pastor John
