When we look upon God’s creation we can discover the very things He teaches in the Word within nature. For instance geese they can sense predators and the seasons at hand. They mate for life and when one goes down the mate goes too. In addition they fly in formation in order to lighten the loads of the ones that follow. The one that starts at the beginning of their journey is not always one that leads at the end.
They learn to work together as they fly in unity and when they meet another group or let’s say another body of believers they don’t argue about the direction nor do they compete for the lead. They simply merge together as one building a larger formation as they continue to seek their destination. Once they reach their destination within the fields we can witness many different species all being fed from the crops that God provides.
Another interesting part is that they don’t chase the wind but they learn how to use the wind to their advantage. They understand the importance of returning home from season to season. Storms throw them off course from time to time but they always seek to return home. It is when we learn to fly in unity with the direction of God that is confirmed in His Word that we can all enjoy the season at hand.
