American Robin Teaches The Need For Wisdom

by Hazel Straub

Two American robins built a nest close to my house. The male robin was extremely territorial and defended a large area surrounding the nest. Robins have exceptional eyesight, better than human eyes. This male bird, however, had a problem. He thought his reflection was another bird threatening his territory and nesting mate. The robin spread its wings with talons outstretched and repeatedly hit the windows, thinking he is attacking another bird invading his territory. He spent nearly 24 hours a day doing this, under the midnight sun of Alaska. He didn’t spend much time sleeping but was vigilant. The only problem was he fought his own reflection, exhausting himself needlessly. Also, the house inhabitants were deprived of rest.

I inquired of Holy Spirit about this situation. He replied, that many of us believers in Jesus, do the same thing. We have keen eyesight but no wisdom and expend all our energy on attacking ourselves or another part of the body of Christ. Our strength gets exhausted and we risk injury to ourselves because we lack discernment about our true enemy. Ask God for wisdom, to raise our love level for ourselves and  brothers and sisters, as he loves us. Rest in God!

Let the dawning day bring me revelation
of your tender, unfailing love.
Give me light for my path and teach me, for I trust in you.
Save me from all my enemies, for I hide myself in you. (Psalm 143:8-9 TPT)

  1. Wow. This was very thought provoking. I do think that this can be so true sometimes in relationships where we do not realise that we are allowing Satan to have a win when we argue or cling to anger and do not forgive. Thanks for sharing this 🤗.

    • Perth Girl, glad that you found it thought provoking. So often we give the wrong response when in a spiritual battle. Getting angry or aggressive solves nothing. Loving others always wins. You are welcome!

  2. Amen. During times of worry and uncertainty, it’s easy for people to turn on each other. Unfortunately, Christians do it too.
    Heavenly Father, please show us what’s REALLY real.

    • Amen, David! It is so important that we remember that we do not fight against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers in high places.

      Amen to your prayer!
