A Committee of Vultures
Driving home from errands yesterday I happened upon this committee. Being a quiet country road I stopped and took the first photo through my windshield.
I wasn't sure if they'd fly off, but I pulled up closer and took this photo out the passenger window.
They are not the prettiest things but I was reminded, as I drove off and one of the fence sitters joined the one on the ground, that they faithfully do the work God has assigned to them.
If it weren't for these birds, there would be a lot more dead creatures along the roads. These aren't the glory animals, like eagles, or herons, or even Canada geese, but they don't seem to care.
There's a lesson in this for all of us, I think, at least for me. Am I faithfully serving the Lord in the role and place in this world He has placed me?
