Wisdom of Geese

I confess that I never held a great deal of respect for geese on the farm. To me they seemed the most unlikely examples of wisdom of any of our animals. What I had forgotten to take into account was their creator. He places a message within every part of his creation…even geese.

First they stick together. One gosling wouldn’t last five minutes alone but from the moment he or she is hatched they  stick close behind the one who will fight to protect them.

Second they love to communicate. They honk when danger is close and they will hiss at an enemy if it comes too close.

Last of all they stay in the place where they were born till they grow strong. Then when the Autumn winds blow they prepare for the journey that lies ahead before Winter.

Yes even geese can reflect the glory of God. Sticking together communicating and preparing for the journey are the wisest choices anyone could make. Who ever called you a silly goose had no idea the complement they were giving!

And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; For You, Lord , have not forsaken those who seek You.
Psalms 9:10 NKJV
