I think it is natural that most people, and especially children, can take pleasure from watching birds. I like to think that God gave them to us as a reminder of our own importance to him.
Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment?
Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
Today's What to Read Wednesday book list is all about birds and how to identify them. If you have a child who enjoys birds, get a few of these titles to go through with them and encourage them to notice God's care for the birds as a reminder of God's care for us too.
