Pods for Peas
Just this morning I was thinking about how things in nature are made in a way that gives them the best possibility of growing to their full potential. Seeds come in protective pods; fawns are born with spotted coats so predators won’t detect them among the shadows of the tress; and chameleons change colors to blend with their surroundings. Everywhere you look in nature you find that just the right color, just the right size, just the right attribute is given to things to help them do what they are supposed to do.
And if everything else is just right for what it is supposed to do, why not me? While I don’t have spots, or a protective pod, when I analyze my life closely I realize that I have been given just the right talents, just the right attributes, and just the right assets to help me and the people I am responsible for find security, happiness, and peace in life.
Next time I see a pea in a pod, I’m going to appreciate that pod more and remember that God has also given me what is best for me!
