I watched this little guy crawl quickly through every petal of this flower. Searching for just the right spot to nibble. He was not up for a photo session.
He was in a hurry. Hungry to what appeared to be the point of hangry in an insect’s world. Frantic. Shoveling it down it’s mouth as fast as possible. Like he was going to miss something.
But this flower was well beyond what he could eat alone. But he was blind to it. And I think we as humans get that way in our lives. In a hurry, not bothering to take time to savor every bite of life we’re given the opportunity to have. Best to get this done, have to go do this, etc.
And in the never ending race to finish first, we don’t taste life. And we wonder why we don’t feel full. There was no savoring of moments that you can’t get back. There was no slowing down to breathe the love. There was no understanding that we have but a short time. And there was lack of determination to make sure we spread the word of eternal life.
You can’t be too busy. For any of it. I don’t want to be stuffed, but have an empty stomach growling for substance.
Their end is destruction, their god is their belly, and they glory in their shame, with minds set on earthly things.
For if your brother is grieved by what you eat, you are no longer walking in love. By what you eat, do not destroy the one for whom Christ died.
