God as a Hen
A third word picture for God is found in a not too well know verse, where Jesus says that he wants to collect his people and protect them as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings.
With God (specifically Jesus) as a mother hen, we are treated to a glimpse of the feminine side of God, as being safe, warm, protecting, and comforting.
We, as baby chicks, are vulnerable, possibly scared, and in need of what the “hen” provides. Yet if we don’t come to the hen (God), we miss out on what she (Jesus) has to offer.
