Welcome to Word-Filled Wednesday at SandwichINK. We're taking a break this week from our Bible Memory verses activites for grandparents and their grandchildren. We should be back to it next week, but this week we're going to take a look at…




A Strutting red farm rooster is as at home in the Bible as it is in the kitchen decor



Three things that are stately in their stride,

four that move with stately bearing.

A lion mighty among the beasts who retreats before nothing,

a strutting rooster,

a he-goat,

and a king with his army around him.

Proverbs 30:29-31 NIV

Why roosters you might ask? Because Barb at Bella Vista is throwing a fun Rooster Blog Party this Friday, August 6. It's the second annual, "Show Us Your Roosters Blog Party!"  It sounded like so much fun, I had to join in. And, you can consider this an official invite to SandwichINK on Friday for ROOSTERS and the never-admit-to-aging Baby Boomers Generation. Also, if you have your own blog, do pop over to Bella Vista TODAY to sign up and join in the fun. (Today is the deadline. 🙂 )

In the meantime, I decided to search Crosswalk.com for Bible verses on roosters or cocks. Of course, I found all the verses about the cock crowing three times when Peter denied the Lord. That one I know so well and it is so very moving and full of hope – that Peter could blow it so much and be forgiven…

I chose this one, however, because, even though I have read the book of Proverbs so many times, I never really paid attention to this until today. Today, because of the blog party, my eyes were open a bit wider for this verse. I was intrigued that the rooster and the goat were likened to the lion and the king. Very interesting! And logically or non-logically, it also filled me with hope. 🙂

    I must admit I have never really noticed that scripture before either Kaye! Stately bearing huh! I suppose that verse is indicating that’s a good thing? lol, I will have to go look it up to see what the Lord is saying exactly 😉

    I enjoyed something different, bless you lovely sister…

  3. Oh I love it.
    I have a whole heap of fabric in a small crate with chooks (Aussie for hens) and Roosters on them. I even have some I made in a swap and I just want to play with it one day.
    After I have played with getting the room tidy that is….LOL.

  4. Hi Amanda, I have to admit, it’s definitely not one of the easier verses. I almost didn’t use it, but was reminded that Paul told Timothy, ” All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17. I figure that means even the confusing verses like this. What’s really interesting is that not all versions even use the word cock or rooster.

    I was also intrigued yesterday, while involved in school activities for my grandchildren, that we read the story of Asa in Kings (from Egermeier’s Bible storybook). We read that Asa started out GREAT. When he came up against a BIG army of enemies, he turned to God and God routed that army all on His own. When Asa later decided to go it alone, he lost BIG time. There are so many examples of the small trusting God rather than their own strength and GOD saving them. I thought of that when I thought of this small rooster. I have NO idea if that is what is meant, to be honest. But thought it was definitely “food” for thought (yup – pun intended). 🙂 AND would also love to hear what everyone else thinks of it. 🙂 🙂 🙂

    LOVED your photo and Bible verse. Those waterfalls are so gorgeous! Have a blessed day. 🙂

  5. How fun, Ozjane! Are you going to join the party? That would be a delightful photo. 🙂 Today is the last day to sign up = but it’s quite easy to do. 🙂 I’ll look for you on Friday 🙂

  6. Wow! Very interesting! Thanks for sharing, have a blessed WFW!

    I’m with you…I hadn’t ever really paid much attention to this verse but we know it’s all in there for good and I’m glad you chose it! It’s challenging and that causes us to go deeper…

    This is WHY I love WFW!

    peace to you today!


  8. Hi Joyfull, blessings to you as well 🙂

  9. Very true, Lori. And so fascinating to discover new and intriguing concepts each week. 🙂 Have a blessed Word-Filled Wednesday.

    Very interesting. I like. I was always familiar with the scripture in regards to Peter and rooster. But I am glad allow me to come familiar with the other scripture. Thanks for sharing!! Happy WFW!!!

  10. Another great post.

  11. Hi Toia, You’re very welcome and thanks for stopping by – and birthday greetings to your family – especially your senior granddaddy! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  12. Hi Denise, Thank you 🙂 🙂 🙂

  13. I, too, had never caught this in this passage – roosters! They do strut, don’t they! I love it when God shows us something in His word that is new to us, that we may know Him even deeper. Now, I will have to read this again and see what He is showing me…. LOL

    Blessings to you, Kaye!

  14. Hi Whidbey Woman, Thank you 🙂 🙂 🙂

  15. Hi Laurie, Thank you. Love to hear if you come to any conclusions. 🙂 🙂 🙂
