IT’S A DOG’S LIFE.
The newest member of our family is Lucy, a four-month-old, six-pound miniature schnauzer. Needless to say, we all fell in love with her and enjoy every moment of time we spend together. I know a lot of you probably have pets; I had not had one in so long that I forgot what a joy they can be. Of course, I spoil and pick up after her, but I love doing it; I guess you could say she’s my best friend. That unconditional love thing is awesome. I never get upset or disappointed with her, and she doesn’t with me either. We just enjoy spending time together, and there is nothing she could do that would make me stop loving her. It’s cool, and isn’t that the way our Father is with His children? We make messes sometimes, and our Father understands. We need companionship, and He is always there. There is never anything we can do to make Him stop loving us. Being a dog—or a human being for that matter—can be a good thing when you have a great Master.
“Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. But the very hairs on your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” (Matt. 10:29–31)
PRAYER FOR TODAY
Dear Lord, everything You do is picture-perfect. It is never underdeveloped or overexposed; it’s just perfect. Nothing happens without You knowing about it. Nothing happens that You are not involved in. May we come today trusting for every need to be met.
