    Peacock Pride

((God))”Gavest thou the goodly 

wings unto the peacocks?” 

Job 39:13

 As with most birds of bright color, the peacock is proud of its gorgeous colorful array that he can display which God has created him with.  The peacock is in the pheasant family and the daddy is called a peacock, while the mother is referred to as a peahen, and the babies are peachicks.  

The beautiful feathers on the back of a daddy are not the tail, but the tail is under these feathers and are of a brown color about a foot or more long.  When the daddy wants to show the mother his beauty, he put out all these long feathers standing in a circle straight out from his body and makes his body to quiver with vibration in front of his mate.  These feathers are so shinny they will look one color when you look at it from this angle but then you move to a different place and it will be a different color.  It is truly fascinating to study the peafowl.

The peafowl is the national bird of India.  The rulers and kings like to use the peacock in the worship of their heathen gods and they are used in different ways in their ceremonies.

The Peafowl are forest birds, but a lot of people have them for pets. They like roosting in the trees but they have their nests on the ground.

When I was a girl we had some peafowl and they liked to fly through the walnut orchard on our place and then they would fly to the neighbors where they had hundreds of chickens up in wire cages and they scared the chickens and when chickens get scared they don’t lay as many eggs, so the neighbors were not very happy with these big birds flying around their chickens even though they don’t harm chickens, because we had chickens too but they did not hurt them.  They are a beautiful sight to see them flying.

Just think of the lovely peacocks that will be in heaven.

We want to be more like the little sparrow that is humble and does not strut around in a proud life.  The sparrow is more like Jesus wants us to be, humble like Him.  We will get into a lot of trouble if we are like the peacock that makes the neighbors unhappy scaring the chickens with their really loud call that they make.  These are big birds so they can pump out a lot of loud noise while going from place to place.  Let us be ready for heaven for Jesus is coming soon.  

In the Bible it tells us that king Solomon enjoyed the glory of the peacock in his kingdom, but it will be even more glorious in God’s Kingdom!

  “For the king's ships went to Tarshish with the servants of Huram: every three years once came the ships of Tarshish bringing gold, and silver, ivory, and apes, and peacocks.  

“And king Solomon passed all the kings of the earth in riches and wisdom.”

2 Chronicles  9:21, 22

"But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him."

1 Corinthians 2:9







THIS bird, which is a native of India, was brought to Palestine by the fleet of Solomon, and to Europe at a very early period. It is now dispersed in a domesticated state all over Europe and the United It is much admired for its beautiful plumage; but the wild bird is much more brilliant than the domesticated ones.

Griffith, the great naturalist, says of them:

"We find in their incomparable robe all that glistens in the rainbow and sparkles in the mine, the azure tints of heaven, and the emerald of the field."

The voice of the peacock is harsh and disagreeable, resembling the word paon, which is the French name for this bird. It is very fond of being admired, and its vanity has been proverbial from early antiquity. It has been asserted that the principal use of its train is, by spreading it, to bewilder and terrify its enemies. It has not this effect, however, upon the tiger, to which this bird falls a frequent victim.

These birds in their wild state prefer wooded districts and low jungles. They roost on high branches, but their flight is low and heavy. They make their nests on the ground among thick shrubs, in which are laid from twelve to twenty eggs about the size of those of a goose. They raise but one brood in a year. The young birds do not get their full plumage until the third year, and only the males possess the beautifully tinted train.

Their food consists of grain, seeds, fruit, and insects.

In ancient Rome the costliness of these birds made them favorite luxuries for the table, and a dish of peacocks' brains and tongues was regarded as an essential part of every great feast. Even in the Middle Ages they formed a standing dish in grand entertainments; but modern people think their flesh dry and tough, and keep them only as ornaments.
