"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house." Matthew 5:14-15

"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it." Matthew 13:45-46

Full House

"Taste and see that the LORD is good;
       blessed is the man who takes refuge in him." Psalm 34:8 

There has been a lot of activity at our bird feeders as of late. Birds of various kinds have been finding their way to our two feeders - one by our apple tree and one by a rose of Sharon bush. I have taken great pleasure in watching the birds. Most times the ledges are full, there is activity on the ground beneath the feeders as well as a swirl of commotion in the tree and bushes of birds awaiting their turn to eat. The whole time they are waiting they are chirping and communicating with one another.

This activity reminds me of this Bible verse. How would it be if all Christians were so excited about being together? If the pews/chairs at our churches were full each week with people eager to learn more about their Heavenly Father. We were eager to be fed and to share that knowledge with others. We took joy in meeting together. I think people around us would take notice, don't you?
