Look Up!
 
Did you know this?  I sure didn't!
If you put a buzzard in a pen that is 6 feet by
8 feet and entirely open at the top, in spite of its
ability to fly, the bird will be an absolute prisoner.

The reason is that a buzzard always begins
a flight from the ground with a run of 10 to
12 feet.  Without space to run, as is its habit,
it will not even attempt to fly, but will remain
a prisoner for life in a small jail with no top.
The ordinary bat that flies around at night,
a remarkably nimble creature in the air, cannot
take off from a level place.  If it is placed on the
floor or flat ground, all it can do is shuffle about
helplessly and, no doubt, painfully, until it reaches
some slight elevation from which it can throw itself
into the air.  Then, at once, it takes off like a flash.
A bumblebee, if dropped into an open tumbler,
will be there until it dies, unless it is taken out.
It never sees the means of escape at the top,
but persists in trying to find some way out through
the sides near the bottom.  It will seek a way where
none exists, until it completely destroys itself.
In many ways, we are like the buzzard,
the bat, and the bumblebee.  We struggle
about with all our problems and frustrations,
never realizing that all we have to do is...
Look Up!
There really is only One Way...
and it's JESUS!
Safe Am I - In the Arms of Jesus!
Sorrow Looks Back.
Worry Looks Around.
But those who have Faith,
Always know where to Look!
