05/09/20 Weekend Grif.Net – Soaring High

There’s =
an oft-repeated story of a chicken farmer who found an =
eagle’s egg. He put it with his chickens and soon the egg =
hatched.

 

The young =
eagle grew up with all the other chickens and whatever they did, the =
eagle did too.  He thought he was a chicken, just like =
them.

 

Since the =
chickens could only fly for a short distance, the eagle also learned to =
fly a short distance. He thought that was what he was supposed to do, so =
that was all that he thought he could do.  As a consequence, that =
was all he was able to do.

 

One day the =
eagle saw a bird flying high above him. He was very impressed. =
“Who is that?” he asked the hens around =
him.

 

“That&#82=
17;s the eagle, the king of the birds,” the hens told him. =
“He belongs to the sky. We belong to the earth; we are just =
chickens.”

 

So the eagle =
lived and died as a chicken, for that’s what he thought he =
was.

 

I want to =
encourage you today that you are an eagle. You may have been brought up =
in a situation that limited your understanding of your potential, but =
it’s time now for the past to lose its hold on =
you.

 

Don’t =
die thinking you’re a chicken. Soar high, just as you were meant =
to.
