Only an amazing God could create this bird.
She's altruistic…self-sacrificing…it’s part of her nature to offer her life to save the lives of her future children still in their eggs. In fact, this bird named Killdeer will sometimes even charge an oncoming cow or horse in an attempt to save her eggs.
The analogy is obvious. Christ gave His life for His children…past, present and those still unborn.
This Kildeer mother who laid her eggs in the stones of our flower bed is one of many examples of God’s divine nature in creation.
“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made…” (Romans 1:20)
Today take time to look for signs of God in your surroundings.
