Really!...Who are YOU?

I am preparing an exhortation to share to my friends come Sunday...I came accross this old story yet message is still strong, it brought me to a little pause....and...self-check...

Here's the story...

A man found an eagle's egg and put it in a nest of a barnyard hen. The eagle hatched with the brood of chicks and grew up with them. All his life, the eagle did what the barnyard chicks did, thinking he was a barnyard chicken. He scratched the earth for worms and insects. He clucked and cackled. And he thrashed his wings and flew a few feet in the air.

Years passed and the eagle grew very old. One day he saw a magnificent bird above him in the cloudless sky. It glided in graceful majesty among powerful wind currents, with scarcely a beat of its strong, golden wings.

The old eagle looked up in awe. "Who's that?" he asked. "That's the eagle, the king of the birds," said his neighbor. "He belongs to the sky. We belong to the earth, we're chickens." So the eagle lived and died a chicken, for that is what he thought he was.

Agila ka ba o manok.......Lipad tayo......

Isaiah 40:31
Those who hope in the LORD will renew their strenght. They will soar on wings like eagles.

...It's really a good thing to know who you are....in the very eyes of GOD...that's what matters most!
