The steady, dreary rain today (and it rained all day yesterday, too) has got me feeling rather blah: but I got a lift from watching this pet lamb who literally bounces all around his owner’s house.
Did you know the only pet actually mentioned in the Bible as a pet is the little lamb in Nathan’s parable to David, 2 Samuel 12:1-4? For a moment David didn’t realize it was a parable: he got quite steamed up, and was all set to execute the greedy rich man who ate his poor neighbor’s pet lamb. The lesson hit home when Nathan said, “Thou art the man”–but it goes to show that God understands and values our connection to our pets. After all, it was His idea that we should have them.
God’s stuff: always good for us, always works.
