Ever heard of “murmuration”?
According to Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary it means:
The act of murmuring: the utterance of low continuous sounds or complaining noises.
Of Starlings: a flock
The video presented Anniversary Sunday morning during our Bible class was a murrmuration of starlings. You can view the video on YouTube and it is called “Amazing Starlings”.
During the winter months, it is not unusual to see a murmuration of starlings. It is amazing to watch as hundreds or thousands of individual starlings fly as one in perfect harmony.
Scientist are baffled as to what causes these birds to move in perfect harmony with one another.
They are being what God made them to be. They are doing as God designed them to do.
The perfect example of individual parts functioning and working as one is the body. It is the body which the Holy Spirit selects as an illustration of the harmony and unity with which the church or the body of Christ should function.
The unity of the physical body is only possible because of its connection to the head.
The same is true of Jesus’ spiritual body. We move with unity and purpose when we move in response to our head, Jesus. As we individually respond to the will and words of Jesus, His body, the church, moves in the unity He designed.
The closer we each get to Him, the closer we get to one another.
