Have you ever wondered why
migrating geese fly in a V formation?
As with most animal behavior,
God had a good reason for
including that in their instincts.
As each bird flaps its wings, it
creates uplift for the bird following.
In a V formation, the whole flock
adds at least 71% more flying
range than if each bird flew alone.
…and quickly gets back into formation.
Whenever a goose falls out of
formation, it suddenly feels the drag
and resistance of trying to fly alone…
… people who share a common direction
and sense of community can get where
they are going quicker and easier than
those who try to go it alone.
Like geese…
When a goose gets tired, it
rotates back into the formation
and another goose flies at the
point position. If people had as
much sense as geese, they
would realize that ultimately
their success depends on
working as a team, taking turns
doing the hard tasks, and
sharing leadership.
Geese in the rear of the formation honk
to encourage those up front to up their
speed. It is important that our “honking
from behind” be encouraging. Otherwise
it’s just - well - honking.
They stay with the unhealthy member of the flock
until it is either able to fly again or dies.
When a goose gets sick or wounded, two other
geese drop out of formation and follow it down to
help and provide protection.
Then they launch out again with
another passing flock or try to
catch up with their own.
May we be so sacrificial, that we
may be worthy of such family
and friends in our time of need.
