Robbing Robins

Who is he in the shadow of the Persimmon tree? The Robin's are friendly feeders in the Persimmon tree. They are seen early in the morning catching the early worms. The real robber birds are the European Starlings. When they come they can strip a tree of all it's fruit in one day. The Bible sometimes refers to a bird as the thief, stealing the seed of God's word. Spiritually these birds are the devil's workers. 

Mat 13:3  And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; 

Mat 13:4  And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up: 

Mat 13:18  Hear ye therefore the parable of the sower. 

Mat 13:19  When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. 
A Robin is coveting a juicy ripe Persimmon.
It is feast time. Eating like a 1950's Biblical spectacular, where Caesar is indulging in a banquet in a drunken stupor. This Robin isn't drunk from the Persimmons. Wait until the Holly berries and Pyracantha berries have fermented after a frost. I have heard a robin fly into our picture window, knocked out and staggering from too many fermented berries. Let none of us be like this feaster of wine.

Pro 20:1  Wine is a mocker, strong drink is raging: and whosoever is deceived thereby is not wise. 
Robin red breast, or is that Persimmon pulp on her feathers? He is a handsome and friendly bird. The LORD takes care of his birds. They do not sit in nests waiting to be fed. They seek food and with some effort they find it.

Mat 6:25  Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 
Mat 6:26  Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?
