Oysters and eagles

Morris Mandel, commenting on our very human desire for security, said: ‘When God made the oyster, he guaranteed his absolute economic and social security. He built the oyster a house, his shell, to shelter and protect him from his enemies. When hungry, the oyster simply opens his shell and food rushes in for him. He has freedom from want.
But when God made the eagle he declared: “The blue sky is the limit – build your own house!” So the eagle built on the highest mountain. Storms threaten him every day. For food he flies through miles of rain and snow and wind…’
The question is: which would you sooner have as the symbol of your life: an oyster or an eagle? No wonder the Bible says : ‘Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles.’
