“Burdens give us wings”

“Burdens give us wings”



Give Us Wings. An old legend says that long ago God had a great many burdens

that He wished to have carried from one place to another on earth, so He asked

the animals to lend a hand. All of them began to make excuses for not helping:

the elephant was too digni fi ed; the lion too proud; and so on.

Finally the birds came and said, “If you will tie them into small bundles,

we’ll carry them for you. We are small but we would like to help.” So God

fastened upon the back of each a small bundle, and they all set out walking

across the plain to their destination. They sang as they went, and did not seem

to feel the weight of their burdens at all. Every day the burdens seemed

lighter and lighter, until the loads seemed to be lifting the birds, instead of

the birds carrying the burdens. When they arrived at their destination, they

discovered when they removed their load; there were wings in their place, wings

which enabled them to fl y to the sky and the treetops. They

had learned how to carry their burdens, and their loads had become wings to

carry them nearer to God. The burdens we carry for others may become wings of

the spirit, to lift us into happiness. —Author Unknown
