We are daily surrounded by the opinions of others, through our TV’s, social media, newspaper or sometimes those leaders that are supposed to be following God and our constitutional rights. We should be taking all things to God before taking any of it to heart (believing).
I am reminded of an old story about an eagle that was hatched in the confines of a chicken coop with his brothers and sisters being chickens. Growing up, he accepted the fact that he must be a chicken. In turn, he was content to live a life as a chicken, no flight, no freedom, but remaining within the confines of the fenced area. He was quite satisfied with the life of those he was associating with.
