A Message of Love in Nature

I am often amazed at how God’s love is so evident in nature. In everything He creates there is a thumbprint of Himself; His DNA in every living thing. Romans 1:20 tells us, “For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see His invisible qualities — His eternal power and His divine nature.”

A friend recently shared the following on her Facebook page. The author is unknown. The story is a touching testament to the very heart of God and His love for us. The heart of God is revealed in nature. May you be blessed as I was in the following:

“My dad has bees.Today I went to his house and he showed me all of the honey he had gotten from the hives. He took the lid off of a 5 gallon bucket full of honey and on top of the honey there were 3 little bees, struggling. They were covered in sticky honey and drowning. I asked him if we could help them and he said he was sure they wouldn’t survive. Casualties of honey collection I suppose.I asked him again if we could at least get them out and kill them quickly, after all he was the one who taught me to put a suffering animal (or bug) out of its misery. He finally conceded and scooped the bees out of the bucket. He put them in an empty Chobani yogurt container and put the plastic container outside.Because he had disrupted the hive with the earlier honey collection, there were bees flying all over outside.We put the 3 little bees in the container on a bench and left them to their fate. My dad called me out a little while later to show me what was happening. These three little bees were surrounded by all of their sisters (all of the bees are females) and they were cleaning the sticky nearly dead bees, helping them to get all of the honey off of their bodies. We came back a short time later and there was only one little bee left in the container. She was still being tended to by her sisters.When it was time for me to leave we checked one last time and all three of the bees had been cleaned off enough to fly away and the container was empty.Those three little bees lived because they were surrounded by family and friends who would not give up on them, family and friends who refused to let them drown in their own stickiness and resolved to help until the last little bee could be set free.”

“Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.” Galatians 6:2

“Be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.” Ephesians 4:32

    the story of the three bees and how you took it and explained how God feels about each of us

    and how we need to support and rescue others that are struggling whether spiritually needing to hear that Jesus died for them on the cross

    Or telling them how to fellowship with Jesus daily as their savior

    or helping them through a physical illness with a gift of home cooked food or a gesture of kindness
    Thank you
