A Baby Eagle Risks His Life

A day arrives in the life of the baby eagle when he is fledged and ready for take off from the nest that has been a safe haven. He must take this risk and learn to fly or he will starve. His parents will soon stop feeding him and he must also to learn to hunt. A few days before take off he has been exercising his wing muscles and feeling uplift, but on the day he must take a step of faith.

During our Christian lives we also reach crunch points where we must take off in order to grow and develop as a unique member of Christ`s body in the way that God has created us. The Christian life is an adventure and that may well mean leaving our comfort zone.
