Are you a humming bird or a vulture?


A humming bird flys around looking for bright, beautiful flowers to collect good, sweet nectar. They are also spreading wonderful pollen by doing this (which aids the flowers). A humming bird stays mostly in the air (very seldom do you see them on the ground).


A vulture can smell something dead and rotting from very far off, they then fly and circle looking for the dead. They feed on dead and rotting carcasses by picking at it. A vulture stays near the ground when feeding and digesting their food.

Do you look for the good in others? Do you try to spread encouraging words? Are you uplifting to those around you? Are you out there looking for good?

OR...

Can you smell a rumor/gossip a mile a way? Do you try to dig up "dirt" on others? Do you pick on others and try to bring/keep them down? Are you out there looking for the bad?

Which bird are you? A Humming Bird or a Vulture? "He who sees good finds goodwill, but evil comes to him who searches for it." Proverbs 11:27 (NIV)

This is so true and awesome! I really needed to hear this put like this today... yesterday and last week! LOL! Probably tomorrow too! It's so eye-opening, no one WANTS to be a vulture, but they may have turned into one without realizing it.

Would you mind terribly if I copy/paste it to share with my readers?

I would like to think I am a good hummingbird on most days, but the vulture can be resussitated without much help. ugh

I think we all need a gentle reminder. That's one reason I posted that, I need to keep the 'vulture' in me in check (I hate it when it rears it's ugly head).
