picture is full of poetry, full of life and truth and
beauty. Mark it. Have you ever seen an eagle stir
up her nest? You know what happens. There in the
nest, right upon the rocky heights, are the eaglets. The
mother eagle comes and, taking hold of them, flings them out
of the nest. They were so comfortable there, but she flings
them right out of the nest, high above the earth. They
begin to fall straightway. They never have been in air before;
they have always been in the nest.

and you will understand. As long as you look upon the
struggling eaglets in the air you miss the point. Watch
the eagle. Having stirred up her nest, "she spreadeth
abroad her pinions," the pinions that beat the air behind her
as she rises superior to it. Where are the
eaglets? Struggling, falling; she is superior; they are
falling. Then what does she do? "She beareth them
on her pinions." She swoops beneath them, catches them
on her wings, and bears them up. What is she
doing? Teaching them to fly. She drops them again,
and again they struggle in the air, but this time not so
helplessly. They are finding out what she means.
She spreads her pinions to show them how to fly, and as they
fall again, she catches them again. That is how God

been stirring up your nest? Has he flung you out until
you feel lost in an element that is new and strange?
Look at him. He is not lost in that element. He spreads
out the wings of omnipotence to teach us how to soar. What
then? He comes beneath us and catches us on his
wings. We thought when he flung us out of the nest it
was unkind. No; he was teaching us to fly that we might
enter into the spirit of the promise, "They shall mount up
with wings as eagles." He would teach us how to use the
gifts which he has bestowed on us, and which we can not use as
long as we are in the nest.
keeping eaglets in the nest! It is contrary to their
nature, contrary to the purposes for which they are framed and
fitted. There is a purpose in the eagle. What is
it? Flight upward. There is a purpose in your
life, newborn child of God! What is it? Flight
God-ward, sunward, heavenward. if you stop in the nest you
will never get there. God comes into your life and
disturbs you, breaks up your plans, and extinguishes your
hopes, the lights that have lured you on. He spoils
everything; what for? That he may get you on his wings
and teach you the secret forces of your own life, and lead you
to the higher development and higher purposes. The
government of God is a disturbing element, but, praise his
name! it is a progressive
Did you hear
the story about the new pastor that preached a
beautiful sermon on his first Sunday in the new
However, the second Sunday he got up
and preached the same sermon word for word as he had
the Sunday before. The third and fourth Sundays were
identically the same thing.
On the fifth
Sunday he got up and said, "how many of you think you
know what I am going to preach about?" Not a hand was
raised. The pastor said, "Well, since I have already
preached it four times and you still don't know what I
have to say to you, it's not going to be worth my time
preaching it. You are all dismissed."
sixth Sunday he asked, "How many of you think you know
what I am going to preach about?" Since they had
checked with each other during the week about how to
handle the situation, every single hand was raised.
"Well," said the pastor, "since you already
know what I am going to say, I really don't see any
need to bore you with the sermon all over again. You
congregation was prepared for him. When he stood to
ask how many thought they knew what he was going to
preach about everyone on the left side of the church
raised their hands and no one on the right side did.
They were going to get him to preach again one way or
the other. As he surveyed the situation he simply
replied, "Well, those of you on the left tell those of
you on the right and then you can go home. You are
