The name Quyen is a Vietnamese name which means
'bird'. Birds are so common and prolific that for the most part they are
just taken for granted that they exist and not given much thought. But most
of do like to hear the birds chattering in the trees and love to see the
sight of returning birds in the spring. Bird watching is a great hobby and
millions of us have bird feeders simply to draw birds to our yard simply so
we can just look at them. So, what scriptural or spiritual significance can
a bird have?
According to the Bible not even a sparrow falls
without the Father taking notice. Nothing or no one is too small or
insignificant in God's eyes. This being true then it is no surprise that God
has use for a seemingly small and useless bird. However birds do provide at
least one service that is just a simple routine part of their lives. They
eat insects that are a nuisance in the garden and eat several times their
body weight, ounce for ounce, every day just to stay alive. That is a lot of
bugs! In the spiritual sense Quyen would be one who attacks and gets rid of
irritating pests sent to aggravate and impede a Christian's walk That, all
by itself is a mighty useful thing to do.
Quyen may feel as though she is small and
insignificant, but if she looks at the broad picture, as her Savior does,
then His would not be complete without her. When she has given her heart to
the Lord to make of it what He will, Quyen becomes an integral part of God's
universe. We all have need of the Quyens that are in our world.
Mat 18:10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I
say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my
Father which is in heaven.
