Mat 6:26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them.

Two birds were living on the same tree each in its own nest. They usually fly to a certain time and place together for food. One day, one of the adventurous birds wanted to try the fullness of God’s providence which is appointed for it. Other bird just stayed with her usual God’s providence.  The adventurous bird went to the same place at a different time. Then at that time there was food different from its usual food and praised God that He has given a big fat meal that day compared to her usual meal. Next day the bird wanted to push some more and went at a different time and then also there was food different from what it had yesterday. It started to eat that food and came back to the tree and told the other bird how much God had blessed her today. On the same day the bird fell sick because of what it ate and died. The food that it had was not suitable for this type of bird, and the bird fell prey for the curse which is in disguise of a blessing. Likewise many of us manipulate God’s blessing with our own wisdom. When we start manipulating, then wrong counsel will be ringing in our minds. We will hear contradictory voice of leading within ourselves. God’s blessing and providence will be given to us at His time and through His ways. We should not manipulate with our timing and our ways however honest and appropriate it may be. When we do that, we would error in our leading and judgment.
