A few years ago we had two dachshunds – a male and a female. Max was the older male dachshund and he was getting up in age. Pebbles was the female and a few years younger than Max. From a distance, they looked like two normal, active dogs. But if you were to visit, you would have noticed something quite amazing.
Looking into the eyes of Max, you would see that he was almost completely blind. Even with his blindness, we chose not to put him down because of this disability but we cared for him. He was not alone. Pebbles became his eyes and his comfort. Whenever he was alone, he would bark as if he were calling out to Pebbles. He knew where to go because he had Pebbles by his side. She wasn’t always patient with him though. At times she would snap at him when he had difficulty being still when it was time to go to bed. As annoying as he must have been, he felt safe when Pebbles was near.
Like Max and Pebbles, God does not throw us away just because we are not perfect or because we have problems or challenges or even a little difficulty. He watches over us and brings others into our lives to help us when we are in need. Sometimes we are like Max being guided by God and those whom he places in our lives. Other times we are like Pebbles, helping others see God.
