A Hen  Gathers Her Chicks

Mothers  of every sort  do their utmost  to protect  their little ones.     They have been known  to fight  to the bitter end  in their efforts  to save their young.     They are so well known  for their protective love  that Jesus even used their example  to describe  His protective love  for people.     Although the Jewish religious leaders  often persecuted  and killed  the prophets  the LORD had sent to them,  the love of God still sought  to protect  and save His people.

In His sadness  over the disobedience  of people,  who are unwilling  to listen  to the LORD,  Jesus said in Matthew 23:37,

O Jerusalem,  Jerusalem,  who kills the prophets  and stones those  who are sent  to her!     How often  I wanted  to gather your children together,  the way a hen gathers her chicks  under her wings,  and you were unwilling.

People haven’t changed.     We still want  to go our own way  and do our own thing.     We have no clue  what is honestly good for us.     We’ve all experienced God’s goodness  and love.     He tenderly cares  for us  —  but,  we nonchalantly  don’t care  that He cares.     Instead,  we stumble around  in the sins  of this world  —  and then blame God  when we get hurt  by the evils around us.     It doesn’t make sense.

God wants us to realize  the goodness  and safety  only He can give.     We don’t need  to be so belligerent  and head-strong  in denying God’s truths.  Maybe we should get going  while the going is good.     God will gladly take us back  into His loving care.

Glad to be where we belong,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord Jesus,  thank You  for Your protective care.     May we always have  the common sense  to run  to You.”

Love,
Margaret
