Carry on, Vulture

Snapped this shot at a local park last Saturday.  I may be in the minority but I find vultures to be one of God’s most intriguing creatures.  It’s probably the fact that they made bald the new beautiful long before Michael Jordan or Telly Savalas ever did.

Perhaps it is the fact that they, more than any other creature, have benefited from the widespread use of automobiles (read: roadkill).

As I sat there and snapped away at this fellow and his catfish meal (I prefer mine fried) I thought about Matthew 24:28,

“Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather”

The Lord is referring to His Second Coming.  By using the example of the vultures, He is letting us know that this event will be very public.  As public as when one sees a gathering of vultures.

We all know what it means when we see these winged sentinels riding the thermals high above us, right?  Well so will we know that the Lord is back when He returns to feed the vultures (Revelation 19:17-18), among other things…

    All creatures matter just as all people matter. A vulture is a fine bird.
