Have you ever noticed geese flying in the air? They fly in a formation to decrease the wind resistance to the ones that follow and this allows the other geese to maintain their strength for when they move to the front. The beautiful part of what they understand better than we is how they rotate the ones in the lead. When one gets tired he steps to the back and allows another to step to the front while never losing their direction within the flock. Not one of the geese fight for their position nor do they become jealous of the one in the lead. They just learn how to work together to reach their destination.
God guides us in the Holy Spirit and it is our job to learn how to fly together to reach our destination. But where we differ from the geese is how often we allow the distractions in the world to throw us off coarse and how we tend to fight for our position instead of allowing God to move us from one place to the next. The object in this life is to learn how to listen and then Jesus will teach us how to follow.
Another Beautiful part of geese is how they never leave their mate. Once in love always in love to the end…amen
