LESSONS OF THE GEESE

In the fall when you see geese heading south for the winter flying along in the "V" formation,

lessons of the geese2

LESSONS OF THE GEESE

you might be interested in knowing what science has discovered about why they fly that way.

lessons of the geese3

LESSONS OF THE GEESE

It has been learned that as each bird flaps its wings, it creates uplift for the bird immediately following.

LESSONS OF THE GEESE

By flying in a "V" formation, the whole flock adds at least 71% greater flying range than if each bird flew on its own.

Quite similar to people who are part of a team and share a common direction get where they are going quicker and easier,

because they are traveling on the trust of one another and lift each other up along the way.

…have the same love, being one in spirit and purpose. Phil. 2:1-2

lessons of the geese7

LESSONS OF THE GEESE

Whenever a goose falls out of formation, it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to go through it alone,

and quickly gets back into formation to take advantage of the power of the flock.

…humble yourselves… and He will lift you up. Jas. 4:10

LESSONS OF THE GEESE

If we have as much sense as a goose, we will stay in formation and share information with those who are headed in the same way that we are going.

LESSONS OF THE GEESE

When the lead goose gets tired, he rotates back in the wings and another goose takes over.

It pays to share leadership and take turns doing hard jobs.

…so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others… Rom. 12:4-6

LESSONS OF THE GEESE

The geese honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep their speed.

…therefore encourage one another and build each other up.

1 Thes. 5:11

lessons of the geese12

LESSONS OF THE GEESE

Words of support and inspiration help energize those on the front line, helping them to keep pace in spite of the day-to-day pressures and fatigue.

It is important that our honking be encouraging.  

Otherwise it's just … well …

honking!

LESSONS OF THE GEESE

Finally, when a goose gets sick or is wounded and falls out, two geese fall out of the formation and follow the injured one down to help and protect him.

LESSONS OF THE GEESE

They stay with him until he is either able to fly or until he is dead, then they launch out with another formation to catch up with their group.

Be devoted to one another… Rom. 12:10

LESSONS OF THE GEESE

When one of us is down, it's up to the others to stand by us in our time of trouble.

lessons of the geese17

LESSONS OF THE GEESE

If we have the sense of a goose, we will stand by each other when things get rough …

LESSONS OF THE GEESE

We will stay in formation with those headed where we want to go.
