Please don’t remind me again and I know you will because I am stubborn. I will keep writing because it is not about me it is about You. You alone are my hearts desire. So the family pet, gee someone will write a fantasy, sci-fi or something without You mentioned, I read them, I … what are You saying Lord?
Two subjects came into my brain. One would of course be the fact that the cat is not mentioned in the bible, yet those lonely people they find dead in their homes are always surrounded by many, many cats. Why are they not surrounded by many, many Christians?
We have a dog we got from an animal rescue mission. Are there bible verses about dogs? Did You have a dog? Did You use a family pet in a parable?
Let’s see, Isaiah 56:10… And his watchmen are blind, All of them know nothing, All of them are dumb dogs unable to bark.
Luke 16:19-31, specifically, verse 21… and longing to be fed with the crumbs which were falling from the rich man’s table; besides, even the dogs were coming and licking his sores.
Philippians 3:2… Beware of the dogs, beware of the evil workers, beware of the false circumcision;
Revelation 22:15… Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the immoral persons and the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying.
Who am I to say whether this is a new way to witness? Who am I to question another’s faith? Who am I to say what God’s take is on pets?
So you meet some one at the dog park and you start a conversation.
Say do you know Jesus my best friend?
