The Two Stubborn Birds. MS/2018/09

There were once two stubborn birds that started their quarrel on the branch of a tree. Each of the birds was overcome by the instinct for self superiority. This made them to engage in a desperate struggle to suppress each other. At a time, they fell off from the branch of the tree and struggled in the mid air. Then they continued their fight on the trunk of the tree and finally on the ground.

 

A boy who was observing from a hidden corner quickly got a net and trapped the two stubborn birds. Having made themselves vulnerable by their fight, the two birds found themselves in the boy’s cage. From their place of confinement, the two birds tweeted a chorus in sorrow for what they lost in their struggle: the high places, the freedom especially of movement and of hunting choice food. They remembered the happy flocks among which they soared above the cliffs.

 

Overcome with grief of living in bondage, the two stubborn birds tweeted very loud as if to reach out to all other birds for help. Their tweets were warning signals to all who are engaged in various forms of struggle for superiority. “Life in the cage is so suffocating compared to whatever you may gain by your struggle”, the birds expressed in their tweets.

In Christian principle, superiority calls for greater service as vividly shown by Jesus Christ in his life and teachings. ” if anyone wants to be first, he must make himself last of all and servant of all” .(Mk.9:35)

    Hey, I think your website might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your website in Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, fantastic
    blog!
