When we accept Jesus as our Savior we are a new creation. We need to always be willing to share our faith but we need to be wise for we may find if we are not careful the world is influencing us instead of us influencing it. God gave me this poem when I tried to help others by trying to fit in. I failed to fit in thank God!
Not the Same
Once a soaring eagle decided to be with the hens.
He thought he would see what it would be like to be like them.
He thought it would be interesting… to just peck about and relax.
(Obviously the eagle forgot all about the ax.)
He would be like a rooster and strut about as king.
He would just kick back and forget about everything.
So he readied himself and prepared to fit in the best he could;
But even his entrance was misunderstood.
He flew down and settled himself where all could see him clear,
And he raised his voice in greeting; loud enough so all could hear.
But all he saw was ruffled feathers and such a terrible din.
Everyone was in such a panic they did not listen to him.
He waited and he waited hoping they would settle down,
But soon he was aware they did not want him around!
For as much as he tried to with them remain,
He found his presence indeed caused to both of them pain.
He could not become a chicken – they were bound and he was free.
Why would an eagle desire to in this place be?
Perhaps he thinks he will change them – that he can change their mind;
But it is impossible for they are not the same kind.
Children of God are reborn they also fly free;
It’s strange that they visit the chickens and partake of their feed.
The wise eagle saw his folly and quickly changed his mind,
For he remembered how he was designed.
2 Corinthians 6:17
Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
