Think on this

“Birds lack faith. They fly away when I enter the orchard, though I mean them no ill. Even so do we lack faith in God.”
.: Martin Luther

  1. Hmm, maybe Luther could have considered another animal for a metaphor…I believe it was Jesus who used the birds as good example of faith: “Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them” (Matt. 6:26). 🙂

  2. I think Luther was using the reference to birds in a different light then Jesus
    (Matt. 6:26). However that verse of scripture is one of my favorite reminders of God’s power and presence. Thanks Jake!
