Fighting Over Food Is Foolish
Imagine greedy eaglets fighting over food
Aggressive, quick to peck the other down
They do not understand the language of brotherhood
Even though mother ensures food is not scarce.
That is what we’re like when we’re jealous
Craving for what God has given our neighbour
Forgetting that as He’s for them so He is for us
The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.
God supplies where He presides
He owns the earth in all it’s fullness
He has no grand children or favourites
All He wants is for you to put Him first.
Psalms:24:1: The earth is the LORD's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. Ps24:1
Psalms:50:10: For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.
But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another Gal5:15
1And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ.
2I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able.
3For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?
4For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal?
5Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man?
6I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.
7So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase
12For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. 14For the body is not one member, but many.
15If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
16And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
17If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?
18But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.
19And if they were all one member, where were the body?
20But now are they many members, yet but one body.
21And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.
22Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:
23And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness.
24For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked.
25That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.
26And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
