In the fable, “Preiching of the Swallow” Esope is making a general reference to never giving up on one’s faith. Thy Swallow is always on the edge of his tiny feet, making sure thy does not get caught by the fowler The moral of this story is that thy prayers to God for as long as thy are in life. Thy swallow is saved by his faith in God. Thy has great wisdom and faith. His soul is filled with a great spirit and is always thinking on step ahead of that fowler. Always have faith on thy side, for as long as needed. If thy is in their good graces.
Thou should always be determined to their faith. Never let thy fear stop thee from achieving their goals. This fable is all about education people into their faith. The fowler is a devoid of grace. Thy fowler is similar to the evil ones who sacrificed my son on the rood. They lose thy faith and did not believe in miracles anymore. They did not see the good in him. Only evil. This is how thou should see the fowler. The sinner. The anti-Christ. The one who does not believe in a higher power. He is a temptation of great sin and shame is set aside. This is very similar to the pain and suffers thy Lord felt up until his death.
Thy Swallow avoids thy snare. He is always one step ahead of the fowler. This is how thy should look at sin. Always been on step ahead of them. Always be on thy right path towards the Heaven. After thy swallow had died, he was praised. He was seen as a clergyman for never given up on his faith. Always pressing forward and being thy best can be. Always trying to be free of sin. Thy believes the trap and the fowler represent sin. Thy swallow needs to stay one step ahead in order to avoid being caught in thy devil’s trap.
There are four blesses of the faith. One thy sins are removed. Preaching is like warning to others about the dangers of sin. To be careful of what is out there. Second thy will end the war; which is what happens at the end of this fable. The war had ended between the bird and the fowler. There was finally peace in the land. Third is a perfect day for love and charity. One should make time for thy ones thou love and also be charitable towards others. If thou does all these things well, thy will end up in God’s Heaven.
It appears that prayer is thy key to life. It will always be there for thyself when ready. Also never give up. Thou should continue to press forward and creating your own path of good faith. In the end, everything will work out for thee. Have faith and just know that God is always on thy side.
