The Lesson of the Raven and the Eagle

Have you ever let the “little things” in your life get you down, made you mad, or take the joy out of your life? If so, then today’s little story is just or you!!

The only bird that dares to peck and irritate an eagle is the raven. It will sit on the eagle’s back and start to continually bite its neck. However, the eagle does not respond, nor does it fight with the raven. It does not spend its time and energy on the raven…it just opens its wings and begins to fly and rise higher and higher into the heavens. The higher the eagle flies, the harder it is for the raven to breathe and soon, the raven falls off due to the lack of oxygen.

Stop wasting your time with the “ravens.” Just take them to your heights and they will fade away.

The enemy will sit behind your back and bite your neck, but those who wait upon the Lord will have new strength; they will lift their wings like eagles. (Isaiah 40:31)

Be strong and Courageous!
