Dance the Good News

DANCE THE GOOD NEWS

The honeybee crawls back into the hive, her honey stomach full of freshly gathered nectar. But instead of taking a rest, she begins stepping round and round.

Other bees take notice. They touch her with antennae. They interrupt her and she gives them a taste of the nectar she's just gathered. What is she doing?

She's dancing the good news. She's telling the other bees that there are flowers nearby.

Bees do a circle dance when they've found a nectar supply within about 100 meters (110 yards) of the hive. When it's farther away they dance the wagtail dance.

In the wagtail, the bee moves in a figure eight pattern. The straight line in the pattern's center shows bees the direction of the flower patch as it relates to the sun. While the bee does this dance, she wags her abdomen and gives off sound blips that only the bees can hear. These wags and sounds tell other bees how far away the flowers are.

Like bees, we love to broadcast good news. A new pet, a video game we've won, getting a part in the play are some things that have us running to the phone, dashing off an e-mail or waiting impatiently to see our friends at school to tell them the good news. But there's one bit of good news about which we're often strangely silent. It's the good news about Jesus.

Do you know Jesus as your friend? Have you trusted in His death as payment for your sin so that you can live without a guilty conscience? Are you looking forward to heaven when you die? If you answered 'yes' you have sweet news for others. Like bees dance the good news about food that sustains physical life, let's dance the good news, by our words and our lives, about Jesus, the giver of eternal life.
