Why Do Birds Sing?

Morning Thought: Ornithologists say that one of the chief reasons birds sing is for protection. If they sing it means they're strong. Their joy repels predators. If they don't sing, they're weak and easy prey. Imagine a boxer who laughs his way through a fight. He has no fear of his opponent. God's called you to be a joyful warrior. Singing, dancing, laughing, praising—your joy comes from Jesus, not what you're facing. Paul lived like this. Listen to what he said: “I have spoken to you with great frankness; I take great pride in you. I am greatly encouraged; in all our troubles my joy knows no bounds” (‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭7:4‬, ‭NIV‬).

I was born and raised in New York. In 1999 I migrated to Australia, married my beautiful wife, Anna, and became a pastor. We are now the proud parents of four children ranging in age from five to eighteen. We are still pastoring a beautiful church in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia (www.brisbanefire.com) and we lead an awesome Bible School (www.holyfireschool.com). I love to write and encourage God's people. And something that many people don't know, I'm a DJ as well (aka DJ SOL Vibes).
