GOD’S WORD FOR MARCH 2 ~ ~ Genesis 1:28~ ~ “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.”

Weaverbirds are very interesting. Others in the family are called weaver finches, various buffalo weavers, sparrow weavers, various social weavers, and bishops. The interesting thing is it’s talent at nest-weaving. Thus, the names. As you might guess by the names, they vary greatly in looks, but the connecting link is their weaving talents.

The weaverbird nest consists of woven strips of fiber and grass. Using beak and feet, the male weaverbird makes loops and knots to weave his hanging nest. Then the nest is inspected by a prospective mate. If she doesn’t like the nest, she will turn him down.

The male must then tear down his work and start over. Some males have been observed constructing and tearing down their nests two dozen times before finding a prospective mate who is satisfied with his work. Sounds sort of like a basket social in reverse.

Some weaverbirds actually build huge cities of nests protected by a woven roof. One roof over a weaverbird city was 15 feet across!

It is amazing the talent and artistic ability that God gave some of His creatures! Those birds do better than I could!!!!

However, what sets us apart from animals is the fact that our Creator made us to have a special relationship with Him. Even when Adam and Eve, and each of us, placed our will above God’s Word, He still loved us enough to pay the highest price to restore us to Himself. Jesus Christ lived in perfect obedience to God for us and then suffered the penalty of our disobedience against God.

In His resurrection from the dead, all those who embrace Christ in faith receive the promise of being made new creations again – beginning right here in this life! That’s the wide gulf between humans and animals!
