I love my chickens. Oh I know very well the only reason they come to me is because they think of me as a walking feed bag. I also have/had Guinea hens as well. We have them because of the gazillion ticks around us. I knew breeding Guineas was very difficult. So when the hen went missing, I thought she had been taken for supper. Last fall, my honey blew the leaves off the yard into the woods and it formed like a canopy. The Guinea hen had gone under the canopy and had started laying eggs. Guineas unlike chicken hens only lay a certain part of the year. I left her go but had little hope. I knew it took a while so I gave her a time limit to hatch them (I was unsure if they were fertilized). I told my boys - "If she hasn't hatched any by the beginning of July, I'm pulling her off and pitching the eggs." I knew she would sit on those eggs for a long time even if they were not fertilized. While setting, she wasn't doing the very thing I bought her for .... eating ticks. A week before I was about to pull her my mom told me she had heard something in the night and I better check on the Guinea. Sure enough, I found feathers and every single egg was gone. GONE. I was sad. Here we were so close to "hatching" and now they were all gone. I can always buy more Guineas and she is to be commended for faithfully setting on those eggs, but she died setting on eggs that would never hatch. How many times do we hold on to something temporal like our children's Wednesday night sport's practice and skip church prayer meeting? After all, "It is only for a season and it is important". We justify our sin with worldly reasoning.  I Corinthians 3:19 "For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness." I am not saying sports is a sin. I am simply saying that it is like that Guinea. Her purpose was to eat ticks. She sat on eggs that would never hatch. She died doing a good thing but not the best. We as parents need to show our children that God has put us here for a purpose - Esslesiastes 12:13 "Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man." Do you have a godly, independent, fundamental Baptist church to attend? If you do, be faithful and get busy serving. If you don't and are in our area, we would love to have you come worship with us.
