Three geese flew overhead this morning at the pond.  I looked up "interesting facts about geese".  They really are remarkable birds.  They mate for life and if one dies the other generally remains single.  The male will sacrifice his life to protect the female, if under attack.  Both parents take an active role in raising the young geese (goslings).  The offspring typically remain close to the parents even after maturing and they return to the place of their birth each year.  When they fly they show great teamwork.  The "V" formations allow following birds to draft behind the lead birds to use less energy and extend their range and they take turns leading these formations.  It's interesting to consider the qualities of loyalty, teamwork and sacrifice that God has built into them.  It's as if geese are natural examples of love captured in a species.
Romans 1:20 For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made.
