Woodpeckers are protected and when they stake out their territory it’s nearly impossible to get rid of them...legally. One persistent bird has taken a liking to my daughter and son-in-law’s house, but rather than attacking the wood siding on the house this bird is attacking a large metal roof vent. I doubt he can actually do much damage, but from inside the house he sounds like Rosie the Riveter. Sometimes we believers are not any smarter than this woodpecker and we just keep hammering on the hard hearts of friends and loved ones with our own wisdom. Paul said, “For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe” (1 Cor 1:21 NIV).
