My cousin Rajan and I were talking. He was rather surprised to see the sparrows outside on our portico. He said he was going to catch one. I told him that it would be impossible, coz even if they sensed one small hand movement inside the house, in the blink of an eye they would be gone.
The little sparrows were just not sure what to expect. They usually played it safe. The safest thing for them to do was fly away. The moment things settled, they would fly back and start pecking at the ground.
I have wondered many a times as to how to make these little creatures understand that I meant no harm to them. My very size, in comparison to them Great; My voice in comparison to their little chirp, a thunder!!!
When God spoke to the Israelites, this is what they said:
And they said to Moses, “You speak to us, and we will listen. But don’t let God speak directly to us, or we will die!” Exodus 20:19
God wanted to talk to His beloved Children. But the very Majesty and the person of God brought great fear upon them. But God’s heart longed to embrace His children. He put down His Glory and His Majesty aside, and came to this Earth to embrace You and Me.
Think about it!! Jesus embraced the leper; He embraced the poor, the destitute and the blind. When the society of the ‘religious’ threw a man out, Jesus grabbed him in. He had made His love known to people, from all walks of life. God’s heart yearns for you, more… much much more than any earthly relationship. More than your Mother. More than your Father. More than your beloved. Keep not Him waiting… Keep not Him waiting.
