James 4:10 Be inferior to the Lord, and the Lord will raise you up..
When eagle babies are born less than a week ago, they will compete for food. No chicks are strong enough to hold their heads for more than a few seconds, so this pair of eagle babies looks like a plush ball sticking to two soft balls that will shake. But when the eagle parents bring food back to the nest, the bigger one will squat down its brother, so that it can't get a piece of food. If its parents bring back very little food, or if it can't rely on parents to bring back enough food, then its aggressive behavior is understandable. But this is not the case. Their parents brought back fish that are several times larger than the eagle's baby, and the food is far more than they need.
The greedy eagle baby reminds me of the stupidity that we do when we want to acquire something that belongs to others (James 4:1-5). Because we want to get the reward that God has given to friends, colleagues, relatives or neighbors, and the dispute has broken out. We are not asking God to reward what we need, but to obtain Him for others (v. 2). But God will give us the best things for each of us, so we don't need something that belongs to others. Of course, we don't have to hurt others in order to get what we need.
Our loving Father gives us each and more than what we ask and think. JAL
The secret of contentment lies in
let God supply;
do his duty to lead the Lord,
and trust in His Word.
Our needs will never let God bounce out the food.
