Today i went out to my mailbox and saw a blackbird in my neighbor's yard pecking and jumping on what turned out to be a baby dove that was learning to fly. As i walked over to it i saw that two large doves, flew a few feet away but were watching over their baby. The little bird just didnt have enough yet to keep it off the ground.

It caused me to reflect and think about that situation this afternoon. Simply put, it is like that many times when people first become Christians. Just as they are learning to fly spiritually in the Kingdom of God (Matthew 13) Satan comes to steal the word of the Kingdom away from those who do not receive or understand it. Believers need spiritual parents standing by, along with the Holy Spirit (typified by the dove) to protect them during their most vulnerable part of growing up....
