Nature follows her own laws calmly and irresistibly. The laws are impersonal and some times seems unforgiving.

Nature And Violence

Nature is violent. And it is obvious that life and death is the law of the field, stream, and jungle. A look at the operation of this law shows a vicious circle of repeated life and death. A lion stalks a gazelle. A heroin stands motionless at the edge of a pond, its long sharp beak poised and ready to kill. High overhead, a red tailed hawk holds its deadly talons close to the body watching for movement in the grass below.
Suddenly, a rabbit's pain becomes an eagle's gain. The leopard family exist at a zebra expense, each survives on another demise.
The principle that nothing lives unless something else dies extends beyond nature to our daily work with God. Interest of the flesh must succumb to the interest of the spirit, or the interest of spirit will succumb to the interest of the flesh, Like wise, in the jungles and fields and streams of our own heart, something must always die so that something else can live.
