Maybe God is giving us a parable about adoption.
In this charming video a mother cat cuddles and nurses baby ducklings. Under normal circumstances, the baby ducks would have been lunch but instead the cat adopted the ducks as her own.
The Bible says,"But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons." - Galatians 4:5 ESV
I wonder if angels see humankind like these ducks. What a strange mix for God to treat humans as his own children.
