Shortly after I moved to my current home, back in May, I set up my bird feeders. It was probably June or July when I noticed new baby cardinals begin frequenting the feeder. Now it’s December, and I see them all day long, munching on the fresh seed. I’m not one who believes that cardinals represent dead people visiting. It’s a nice sentiment, but you’re fooling yourself if you believe it. I’m feeding them, so of course, they come into my yard.
I also live near a lake, and if I began feeding the alligators in that lake, they would come close too and would probably multiply like the birds. However, I have not chosen to feed a large scary animal, but a beautiful and tender one. Whatever you choose to feed will come near you. If you feed your soul the Word of God, the Kingdom of Heaven will come near you, but if you choose to feed it thoughts of sin, the consequence of sin will overtake you. Keep feeding on the Word of God, and it will grow, and your blessings will multiply.
Therefore put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. James 1:21
