Parabel of the Pets
There once was a poodle named Bruno and a cat called Corporal. At the appointed time of day, the mistress would find a quiet spot in the garden to rest and reflect. Both pets were often found to be at her side, since they had learned that time spent with her was always preferable to time confined alone.
Corporal relished this time and drew near for the Loved One's attention.He stretched out full length to receive all the loving strokes she would offer.Bruno, on the other hand, looked anxiously up and down the way before him for signs of action. He would restlessly move from spot to spot, inching his way beyound the confines of his mistresses property. And if she but glanced away,he would leave her presence and race to other places and other interests.
The question came to me;am I like the cat, relaxing in my Lord's presence, enjoying His strokes? Or like the dog, who regarded these times as freedom from emptiness but is only biding time until something more interesting comes along?
