What Are You Afraid of? (A short video parable)

08 May

I believe this is a male cardinal. He sees his own reflection in the garbage can — and is certain “that other bird” is a threat!

Isn’t it true that the greatest threat we often face as Christians is . . . ourselves? We may elevate our own view of ourselves above what the Lord says about us. Or we may fight the work of God in us, especially if that work involves some suffering and challenges.

It is true that right now we see “only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.” (I Cor. 13:12). But when the only face we see is our own, we are no better off than a cardinal banging his beak against a garbage can!
