If you enclose a hawk within a one meter square fence but entirely open on top, the bird, in spite of his ability to fly, will be a prisoner. The reason for this is that a hawk always begins its flight with a short run before. Without space to run, it will not even try to fly and will remain a prisoner for life.
The bat, although a remarkably nimble creature in the air, can not exit a level place. If placed anywhere on flat ground, all it can do is walk around confused, looking for some slight elevation from which it can be launched.
A bumblebee, if dropped into an open pot, will be there until it dies or is removed. He does not see the exit at the top so therefore persists in trying to get out through the sides near the bottom. It seeks a way out where none exists until it dies and falls to the bottom of the pot.
There are people like the hawk, the bat and the bumblebee – obstinately throw themselves against obstacles, without realizing that the way out is just above. If you’re like a bee, a bat or a hawk, surrounded by problems on all sides, look up.
And God will be there to help you!
