The other week I was watching this House Sparrow and wondering why seeds were sticking to its beak.
The scene was kind of amusing. It caused me to ponder…
I wish the worlds only problem was sticky seeds.
Today I heard about another stabbing – yesterday it was a shooting.
I wonder how the seeds of hatred stuck to their hearts.
Castro’s and Hitler’s seeds of hatred showed in their lives – in how they treated people.
I wonder. Did hatred, control, and unforgiveness begin in their early lives?
Do you ever watch people who won’t forgive – who are self-centered and controlling?
You can see it on their faces – like sticky seeds.
Unforgiveness complicates life.
It separates you from people. It isolates.
You are the loser.
Seriously. What are you wishing for the person you won’t forgive?
Pain? Problems? Hell?
Sometimes I wish life would get simpler as we grow older – as the world grows older.
I wish we didn’t have to see the sticky-seed results of hatred and unforgiveness on peoples faces.
I see it on the news – almost every day. In angry protests. In stabbings and shootings.
I see it in the Christian community. .
Angry Words. Separation. Shunning.
God loves you more than any sparrow. He knows what is going on.
Breathe. Pray. Trust. Wait.
Don’t allow the sticky seeds of anger and unforgiveness stick to your heart.
I promise you. They will show on your face.
