TOPIC: THE STRANDED PARROT AND THE FIREFIGHTERS!

BASIC SCRIPTURES: ROMANS 2:1-11; CORINTHIANS 10:13

Parrots are among the most intelligent birds with a unique ability for some species to imitate human voices thus enhancing their popularity as pets. Literature has it that the first record of a parrot being kept as a pet in the British Isles was 1504, when Prince Henry Tudor, later Henry VIII, took possession of an African grey parrot.

Very recently, a parrot in London named Jessie escaped from the home of the owner and perched on a nearby roof for 3 days. The London Fire Brigade was called to rescue the fine bird. The parrot owner told the fire brigade crew member that in order to bond with the bird, he should say to her, “I love you.” The firefighter did exactly that! However, when he told Jessie, “I love you,” she reportedly told the London Fire Brigade crew member to “fuck off.”

What a response to a loving call for a rescue, you will say. Brigade Watch Manager, Chris Swallow, said that the rescue was attempted because “there were concerns that she may be injured” since she had stayed up on the roof for so long. It’s possible that the bird may have been hurt by someone! But do you know that are like this bird? When they hear a loving call for of their souls, they rebuff it, asking the preacher, like Jessie, to “fuck off.”

Do not be like Israel as described in Romans 10:21, “But to Israel he saith, ‘All day long I have stretched forth My hands unto a disobedient and gainsaying people.” As in Verse 4 of today’s 1st scripture, God’s goodness, forbearance and longsuffering is aimed at giving you an opportunity for repentance, but it is not forever! A wise man said: “God doesn’t take you in a straight line.

There are twists and turns. It may not happen the way you thought, but the disappointments, the bad breaks are all a part of God’s plan.” The story of Jessie the parrot ended well. Later she calmed down, flew off to another roof and then to a tree. She returned back home to her owner and was filmed sheepishly saying, “Thank you” to the fire service.
