AS FREE AS A BIRD

"In the Lord put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?" writes the Psalmist (Ps. 11:1). The concept of a bird in flight brings to our thought a sense of freedom and effortlessness, of implicit trust. The bird does not hesitatingly hop from twig to twig in an effort to reach a distant goal. He wings his way to his objective without hesitation or uncertainty.

On page 7 of "No and Yes" Mary Baker Eddy uses the Psalmist's phrase when she says, "Sooner or later the eyes of sinful mortals must be opened to see every error they possess, and the way out of it; and they will 'flee as a bird to your mountain,' away from the enemy of sinning sense, stubborn will, and every imperfection in the land of Sodom, and find rescue and refuge in Truth and Love."
