Caption This

Be it marriage, kids, church, politics, social media or any kind of relationship, you could probably write a hundred different captions on the picture below. Sometimes birds act like humans.

 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.  Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. Colossians 3:12-13

Do you resolve???

  1. Do I resolve? Personal slights, humanistic imperfections, yes. Radical departure from pinnacle Christian doctrinal truths, that one I can’t overlook because I cannot accept a different Gospel than the one we have been given in the NT with the new covenant that Jesus ushered in. We live in the days of diminished discernment, coupled with intimidation by fear, to judge Biblical teaching, and that discernment is still a requirement and desperately needed. Blessings Gary.

      1. I enjoy reading your comments Bruce whenever I come across them. They are encouraging, uplifting and thought provoking. 🤔😊

    1. My thoughts behind the bird pictures Bruce was to find out where people seemed to be at this juncture…Very open ended and you responded right in the strike zone. You are so right. People are dropping out of whatever faith they had right and left using feelings (the new baseline for logic) as justification and argument.
      marriages are less healthy and the list goes on. We sometimes look like those birds to God though.

  2. This afternoon while reading on the porch I had a front row seat to a territorial dispute between two male robins. I looked up and realized both their missuses were sitting nice and peaceful, sharing a limb on a tree watching the boys duke it out. Then just like that it was resolved and both pairs flew off with their respective mates. Having been raised in a pacifist community that frowned on conflict and emphasized peace, I learned to be like those female robins. Real peaceful looking on the outside. Only my inner dialogue looked more like the male robins and fostered anger. The Lord has worked real hard with me on this over the years. Only when I take my anger Him first, confess my role in the conflict and forgive the other person can I return to a dispute clothed with compassion, kindness, patience, and humility and seek resolution. He’s so faithful to point to the truth of the matter. I recognize the Baltimore Oriole but not the yellow bird. Is it a type of warbler?

    1. Beth I believe it’s the male and female Baltimore oriole on the feeder. They seem to be saying “You are supposed to be watching the nest!”
      ya, I would be, by my nature, sitting on a nearby limb throwing in one liners to the dispute. Totally unhelpful by nature. God has been working on that.
