(Let Them Go, and Pray)
Envision, if you will, a mother bird teaching her young fledgling to fly. She leads the little bird out of the nest for its first solo flight. Mama bird has taught the young one well. She turns him loose and hopes that he uses his learned skills. Suddenly, here comes helpful neighbor bird who wants to save the little one. The neighbor bird grabs the young one and doesn’t allow him to experience flight on his own. Neighbor bird means well, but the young bird now doesn’t want to fly on his own or leave the nest. Mother bird has to start all over again.
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Prov. 22:6).
As parents, we too must allow our children to leave the nest. Neighbors and friends still need to watch out for a child’s welfare, yet be careful to help out—only with the agreement of the parent—if or when the child goes astray.
By all means, if a vulture comes to harm the young fledgling (or child), please do come and rescue the defenseless one. Now when all is well, please dear neighbor, allow the young bird to grow up and be his own bird.
"Recently this has happened to our little nest and God is getting us through the transition peacefully."
