 It was said that a small village lived on fishing. Even the birds lived on what the fishermen left behind. Suddenly, the fish became scarce and the fishermen left for another area to catch more fish. The birds could not find food because they totally depended on fish. Since they had never learned how to feed themselves, they eventually died.

 Sometimes, our situation is like that of those birds. We depend on what we can get from others, but we do not have daily encounters with the Bible. We depend on others’ experiences instead of our own with God. This is how we sentence ourselves to death like the birds that did not learn anything.

→ English translation of the story here at St-Takla.org: تعلم واشبع!

St-Takla.org Divider

Grant us to follow the footsteps of the Saints,

Carried by Your Holy Spirit in us,

To be blessed with daily experiences with You God,

To realize Your works in the Church throughout the generations.
