Which is what this “gang” of turkeys was doing, only they were looking for real grubs (and worms and tiny insects)
As they kicked up the leaves, they filled the woods with their shuffling sounds. shuffle, shuffle, shuffle.
Now, this “posse” knew (another name for a gang of turkeys) that to find the best food they’d have to dig for it. The good stuff doesn’t just hang out on the surface.
How often do we try to fill up on surface stuff? All we end up with is an empty soul and skinny faith!
Sometimes we have to go deep, make some shuffling sounds flippin’ through the Bible for wisdom.
Beth Moore (Bible Teacher Excellentus) observed that one of her favorite sounds in church is flipping Bible pages.
She said it reminds her of what angels’ wings must sound like. 🙂
Well, speaking of flipping Bible pages, there’s another lesson we can learn from the turkey, and that is to hang with a posse.
It’s not only funner to dig through the Bible with friends, sometimes it’s more effective. Kicking through the leaves with a gang exposes worms for more than one turkey. We can feed off each other’s finds.
So join a study group or, if you’d rather, an online group, and start digging deep. Here’s one of Beth Moore’s online studies you might like:
