So we all know that God created us in His image. We, the humans, are the superior species. God made us first and then gave us the animals for us to care for. Now, i am not some intense Animal Rights activist but abusing animals is purely wrong. God gave us animals to take care of. So, we destroy their habitats, hunt them for sport -not food- and throw them out when they need us. Is this how we should be taking care of the gifts God gave us to take care of?
I am not saying that any of you do this, i don't know you so i have no right to say anything. But I know what some people are saying, that "One person can't do anything". Well, let me tell you all that I have known people who have made a huge difference to multiple lives. My aunt and I have saved more animals than i can even count. But if I am still not connecting to you, then read this short story:
A man and his young son were walking along the beach one morning. The tide from the night before had washed thousands of starfish onto the shore and left them to die. The little boy ran up and one by one, began to toss the starfish back into the ocean. His Dad came over and asked him what he was doing, the boy told him he was saving the starfish.
"Look around! There are hundreds of them," The dad exclaimed, "You can't possibly make a difference!"
The boy looked at his dad, picked up a starfish and flung it into the ocean.
"It made a difference to that one."
"The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them. The cow will feed with the bear, their young will lie down together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox. The infant will play near the hole of the cobra, and the young child put his hand into the viper's nest. They will neither harm nor destroy on my holy mountain, for the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord as the waters cover the sea." (Isaiah 11:6-9)
Song: I Refuse by Josh Wilson
I don't want to live like I don't care
I don't want to say another empty prayer
Oh, I refuse to sit around and wait for someone else
To do what God has called me to do myself
I could choose not to move
But I refuse
Sorry i havent posted in awhile, ive been gone!
have a Christ-centered day!
