Job 38:41



41 Who provideth [kuwn] for the raven [`oreb] his food [tsayid]? when his young ones [yeled] cry [shava`] unto God ['el], they wander [ta`ah] for lack [baliy] of meat ['okel]. KJV-Interlinear



41 'Who prepares for the raven its nourishment, When its young cry to God, And wander about without food? NASB



Ravens are highly intelligent and are probably one of the smartest of birds, but lazy and quarrelsome even though extremely dedicated to their mate. When the young are hatched and ready to fly, they are literally kicked out of the nest and sent into the world to fend for themselves.


With no skills and no experience, and a strong tendency to not work, they have a tremendous disadvantage so far as surviving in life. Yet they do survive and thrive. They are certainly not endangered.


Luke 12:24

'Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them.'


The world is made up of lots of types of people. Some are strong and full of hustle. Some are weak and lack an IQ. And there are those who are in between obviously.


But just as God hears the cries of the young ravens, who do not have much in the way of respectable character, and never will, so too, God hears the cries of people who are among the higher valued of creatures.


No creature is so good or so bad, so strong or so weak, so energetic or so lazy, so smart or so dumb, that God sends them to the back of the life support warehouse.


There is a category of grace, which we call common grace, which is equally available to all, regardless of ones character or circumstances.


From the air that we all breathe, to the economy that we all derive our livelihood from, God is there supporting all aspects of life.


The raven is helpless through its own attitude and choice, and yet it is still supported by God.


This does not grant permission to be irresponsible in life, but it demonstrates that God will keep you around despite your lack of commitment to your spiritual life. Ravens have their purpose in life. So do you. It might be nicer if your purpose was to advance in your own spiritual life, rather than simply being historical filler in which God uses you as a stepping stone for someone else.


Psa. 147:9-11

9 He gives to the beast its food, And to the young ravens which cry. 10 He does not delight in the strength of the horse; He does not take pleasure in the legs of a man. 11 The Lord favors those who fear Him, Those who wait for His lovingkindness. NASB
