My wife and I were out walking the other night and came upon a mother robin feeding her baby.  Where ever mom went, the baby followed a few inches behind.  When she found a worm that baby stuck its beak in the mother’s face waiting to be fed.  The mother managed to find a big worm and throw it onto the grass and another baby appeared, almost as if by magic.  Now she had two babies, each squawking in her face to be fed.

    That’s what we need to be like when it comes to God.  Too often we wander through our days doing things that we want to do.  We only worry about God and what He wants to do for us when we feel a need for Him.  We should go about every minute with the same attitude as those baby robins.  We should go through our days following as close to God as we can.  When He has something for us, we should do everything in our power to have Him share it with us.

    Psalms 25:5 says, “Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.”  The phrase ‘teach me’ appears 14 times in the book of Psalms.  We need to take more time and say, “God, teach me.”
