If you have chickens, you know that a critter in the area is a literal real concern. However, this can also be true metaphorically for every aspect of life. My Dad taught me this at a young age. We didn’t have chickens and I had never seen (or smelled) a weasel. However, I knew exactly what he was talking about and this parable has helped me throughout my journey.
Our instinct is one of our greatest gifts, but also one of the easiest things to ignore. When we really want something or someone we often suppress what our heart is telling us and when we do this it ends in regret 100% of the time! So, when we smell or feel something isn’t right, IT'S NOT and we should lock up our chickens!
