Oct 25 – Birds and Windows

I heard a gentle thump on the patio window. Looking up, I saw that a robin had flown into the glass. It wandered around in a daze for a while, but eventually it recovered and flew away. Windows that reflect a bird’s natural habitat, such as trees, can cause them to make the mistake of flying into hard surfaces, resulting in injury or death. This is especially true in cities with large high rise buildings and lots of glass. Things are not always what they appear to be. We too can be fooled by appearances and lured into bad habits, finding out too late that we are trapped into destructive habits because we are not seeing what is really there.. Although often humorously laughed at as mythical character with horns and a long tail, Satan is real and no joke. Paul wrote of his work on unsuspecting victims, “…whose minds the god of this age (Satan) has blinded, who do not believe lest the light of the gospel….should shine on them.”
