[CF Devotionals] 2020-10-13 - A Lesson from a Fawn

- - - - - - -

Richard and I have been observing and feeding birds for many years. Sometimes, a family of deer will join the birds, and they especially enjoy the cracked corn that we distribute for the birds. Recently, a little fawn saw something that apparently looked exotic to him. He spied a big lily plant, so he ate one of the leaves. But after all was said and done, he returned to the corn - steady, nutritious, simple but good.

We are sometimes like that fawn. We think the "grass is greener" somewhere else. Someone else has a better job, a better church, a better car, a better house, a better life, period.

But in reality, while everyone has their own challenges and seasons of difficulty, we also all we all have blessings for which we should be thankful, and we can be content right "smack dab" in the middle of our own lives!

Philippians 4:11b-14 (NIV) I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.

Luke 3:14 (NASB) Some soldiers were questioning him (Christ), saying, “And what about us, what shall we do?” And he said to them, “Do not take money from anyone by force, or accuse anyone falsely, and be content with your wages.”

Romans 8:28 (J.B. Phillips) Moreover we know that to those who love God, who are called according to his plan, everything that happens fits into a pattern for good.
