'New Zealand probably has more resident birds that can't fly than any other place on earth. I'm told that long ago these birds could fly but life was so good in their land and enemies so few that they saw no reason to exercise and develop their God-given talent, and thus they let these attributes fall into disuse. If you don't use the talent, you lose the talent, and that's exactly what happened. 'We don't want to be like the Kiwi bird. Faith may have been handed on to us, but if we let it lie dormant, it will surely wither.
