I’m reminded of a story about a fire in a henhouse in
a few years back. The owner and his grandson, after the fire was put out, discovered a dead hen, top feathers singed brown, her neck limp. Mission, BC
But when they pick the hen up, there was movement, and beneath the hen’s dead body came four chicks scurrying out. The owner figured the hen gathered her chicks under her wings when she sensed danger, and she sacrificed herself for her babies.
Try telling those chicks that a mother bird is not a wonderful image for God.
