TOPIC: THE STRANDED PARROT AND THE FIREFIGHTER
BASIC SCRIPTURE: ROMANS 2:1-11
ny people are like Parrot Jessie. When they hear a loving call for the salvation of their souls, they rebuff it, asking the preacher, like Jessie, to “fuck off.” You may be reading this piece today and you have rebuffed the salvation message for so long. Do not be like Israel that Apostle Paul referred to in Romans 10:21, “But to Israel He saith, All day long I have stretched forth My hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.” As in Verse 4 of today’s scripture, God’s goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering are aimed at giving you an opportunity for repentance.
Note also that the parrot spoke the words she had always heard the owner use! Be careful how you talk! Be mindful of how you dress! Be concerned generally about your lifestyle because someone or even a parrot might be watching you! The story of Jessie the parrot ended well. Later, she calmed down and returned back home to her owner and was filmed sheepishly saying, “thank you” to the fire service. Your own story too will end well as you always remember that: “Someone somewhere is learning a new lesson watching you live your life” (Wogu Donald). So, shine daily! Pray now!
