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 respecting one another with a sense of honor without pushing others around.
Another interesting part is that they don’t chase the wind but they learn how to use the wind to their advantage. Sometimes storms throw them off course and separate them from the flock but this never stops them from seeking their return. Sometimes they reunite in flight and other times they simply join at their destination. They understand the importance of returning home from season to season and they understand the importance of unity in order to reach their destination.
It is when we learn to put aside our differences and seek the direction of God that He will show us the Way. Here is a video shot from the Glen Beck speech Restoring Honor that I believe is a call for unity in order to regain our direction….
