directly to the sun, where no other bird can reach.

3) Confront the Problem
The Eagle knows how to confront the storm.
The rest of the animals run away when the storm comes, but not the Eagle
In the middle of the store, the eagle looks for the place he saww last the sun,
When the store gets worse, the eagle flies above the store, where the sun dries out its wings, so he
can fly higher.

Abram. I am your shield, your very great reward." But Abram said, "O Sovereign LORD, what can
you give me since I remain childless and the one who will inherit my estate is Eliezer of
Damascus?" And Abram said, "You have given me no children; so a servant in my household will
be my heir." 4 Then the word of the LORD came to him: "This man will not be your heir, but a son
coming from your own body will be your heir."
He took him outside and said, "Look up at the heavens and count the stars—if indeed you can
count them." Then he said to him, "So shall your offspring be."

man who did not make God his stronghold but trusted in his great wealth and grew strong by
destroying others!“ But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God's
unfailing love for ever and ever.
6) The Eagle knows where to build.
When they build a nest is for its entire lifespan. They choose a solid and high rock as foundation.
