A Day at the Flea Circus

in
1 Samuel 26:20b
“...for the king of Israel is come out to seek a flea, as when one doth hunt a partridge in the mountains.”

When King Saul pursued David to kill him, David compared himself to a flea by asking whether the king had come out with soldiers to kill a flea. But just because a flea is small, it doesn’t mean that God treated it as unimportant when He designed it.

If you see a flea jump – and that’s not easy to do – you will wonder whether the flea is actually powered by springs! The amazing truth is that the flea is powered by tiny springs. When it jumps, the flea actually releases more than five-and-a-half times as much energy as the most perfect muscle tissue can generate! The flea is able to do this using normal muscle output because he has small pads of natural protein rubber called resilin in his legs. As he slowly depresses the pads, he stores the energy which will be released in his next leap in one-seventh of the time he took to store it!

To our Creator, nothing and no one is unimportant. This is because He is, by nature, a loving and caring Creator. Do you know His love? Do you know that He seeks a personal relationship with you through what Jesus Christ did for you on the cross?

Prayer: 
Dear Father in heaven, it was Your Son, my Savior Jesus Christ, Who taught me to call You “Father.” Help Me not to take Your love for granted, but always to thank You for Your love for me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
