June 23. Word for today.

Deuteronomy 23:6 If you come across a bird’s nest beside the road, either in a tree or on the ground, and the mother is sitting on the young or on the eggs, do not take the mother with the young.

We live in a quiet peaceful neighborhood. When we had been away for a week we found that barn swallows had been building a nest right outside our front door, and a mother had already started to lay eggs! We let the birds nest, and after the young was flown out we let the nest stand. This year a couple of tree swallows took the nest and re-feathered it, and now they are having young birds. We believe that protection of all life, especially “birthing people and birds” (birthing person is the new official name for biological women) is of utmost importance.

2020 barn swallow and young

The verse is remarkable, check the context.

Yes, there is a difference between a man and a woman, and especially when bearing or raising a child, she deserves all protection
