DON’T LET ANYTHING TAKE YOUR PLACE!!!
I saw a display picture of a dog, babysitting a child.
And I thought, this is so cute.
Incidentally, there are arguments (pictures) to support the fact that dogs are the best babysitters. And that pit bulls, of all breeds, were known for centuries as “The Nanny Dog” and were often in charge of babysitting the family’s children. (boredomtherapy.com)
Interesting I say and then it got me thinking……….
Will animals begin to take our place……….
Gone viral is the video of a nanny violently abusing her charge
Shame this happened with one given delicate duties to discharge
But instead she took undue advantage of one not as large
And yet we see a dog rise up to protect their charge
How about Balaam, the sly wicked prophet
Who wanted just to line his pockets
And so he thought to curse; A blessed people not accursed
And because of Balaam’s greed; The donkey broke the creed
Alas! A donkey sees what was shielded from Balaam’s eyes
In his folly and confusion, Balaam strikes the donkey thrice…………….Numbers 22
Jesus warns that if we hold our praise back even stones will replace us. ……………. Luke 19:40
I do not wish to be replaced by an animal or by a stone for that matter.
So like Motor City Mass Choir said in their 1997 “Shout in the House” album
“Ain’t gonna let no rock out praise me.
Ain’t gonna let it sing in my place.”
So go get your praise on y’all!!!
