It’s spring and the birds have been building their nests. Soon, if not already the eggs will be laid, and not long after that they will hatch. The little birds will be watched over carefully by their mothers, who will keep them warm and fed. But that will not last for long. The mother is not in the business of creating dependent children. She will push them out of the nest, and make them try out their wings. They will not leave immediately, but they will have to fly off and make it on their own.
Now, what makes me think is that many people prefer to be in the “Nest”, being fed and cared and not fly by themselves!…It’s called the “Comfort Zone”!…
Let’s see some main factors for those who are doing nothing to enhance and develop their lives and staying in the “Nest”:
- The nest symbolizes that benefit that the person claims, (I’m not against it!..For those that really need , and can’t provide for themselves).
- The fear of loosing and investing
- Depending on others
- Lack of vision, and projects
- Low self-esteem
- Laziness and complacency
- Past failures
God has given us, talents and skills, wings to fly and provide for a better life. Now, are you in the nest? Watch out, one day your “Mum” will kick you out and then?
