For a time the humming birds seemed to have deserted our feeder. But now they are back in all their feisty glory—beautiful little birds chasing each other all across the back yard. They had lots of flowers before to visit, so our feeder was just one stop among many. But now that the flowers are fading away in the heat, they have decided to come to the one unfailing source still available—our sugar water feeder.
How like people!
“In what way?”
In that they will use one another only when they need them, and forget them when they don’t.
Yes, but that isn’t true of a genuine friend.
“How will he act?”
Listen to Proverbs 18:24:
A man with many friends may come to ruin,
but the one who shows love sticks closer than a brother.
