Birds Of A Feather Flock Together

MsCinnamonKissMsCinnamonKissThat saying is very true and people don't want to accept it but think about it don't you think it's ironic when the person you hated so much all of a sudden y'all hanging out together and have become best friends. The real friends you had in the beginning will eventually drift away because y'all have different common interests and it's hard to connect with a person when the common interest is different. Think of birds you never will see a humming bird flying next to a wood pecker because they have different characteristics and different interests. So to see them together would be kind of weird don't you think? A wood pecker will only be with it's on kind. Analyze that for a minute! 

Let's take it to the biblical sense....

Let’s  look at the parable of the unjust steward. (To sum it all up) In this parable a rich man had a steward, or manager, of his goods. The steward did not do a good job and therefore the rich man was going to replace him. Upon finding out, the steward made deals with the rich man’s debtors thinking that they would help him in return after he was fired. Here was how Jesus viewed this behavior: “8 And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light. 9 And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations..” – Luke 16:8-9 KJV  The steward was dishonest in his dealings, and when he was found out, he gravitated towards others who were similarly dishonest – birds of a feather. The other side of the coin is how we as Christians should “flock”. And it’s no coincidence that we are considered to be in the “flock” (sheep flock, not bird flock) of God with Jesus as our Shepherd. In 2 Corinthians we read: “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?” – 2 Corinthians 6:14 KJV

So for those of you that asks questions "Why are we not friends anymore, or why don't you call me" and all that jibbajabbish (just think about it)...."Birds Of A Feather Flock Together"...There is obviously a reason why we are not close like we use to be. Check yourself and the people around you because you can't possibly think that that two different birds are going to associate together. I THINK NOT!!! Get it together...
