Smart Dog

I saw this and thought, “That’s a smart dog!” It really is amazing what dogs can do. Instinctively when Rascal sees another animal on the television, he runs toward it barking and growling. Now that’s not that smart, but he can tell the difference between an animal and a human. He can do the normal smart dog performance such as a hand shake, speak/bark on command. He can high-five, turn around and even give a hug. But on this particular morning, as shown in the picture, Rascal inspired me. Hopefully you can see this, but he is laying down in a rectangle of light shining through our living room skylight. Is that a coincidence or did Rascal intentionally lay down in that spot? It was intentional, and not only was he laying down in the light, but he was facing and looking towards the one he loves the most in the world, my wife.

Be inspired today to get in the light and by faith look towards your Savior. How do you get in the light and look towards Jesus? The best way is to open up God’s Word and ask God to shine His light on you. Feel the warmth of His love as you read those eternal words. Stay there for a while to demonstrate your devotion to Him. Jesus’ light is still shining even in a dark world.

John 8:12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

Come Sit for a Spell

Recently as I drove through the neighborhood I saw this sign on the front door that stood out to me. Kristen and I had been talking about the tall stand up signs near the front doors of homes that simply say, “Welcome.” You’ve seen them. They add a nice decorative look to the front of the house. I thought a professional thief just might interpret that sign the wrong way. The sign I saw however was different, it said, “Come in and sit for a Spell.” I know that means to come in for a period of time, but when I read it, immediately I thought, “No, I think I will pass because I’m not remotely interested in a spell being put on me or anyone else.” HERE’S the reality of that sign—witchcraft, sorcery and spells are an abomination to our God, but they are the practice of many in our society today. Why would anyone else engage in such dark practices when they could simply pray to the Light of the World? It seems like our whole world today is under some kind of blinding spell and we don’t see the evil because it dresses well and talks nice. But don’t you know that even the devil disguises himself as an angel of light? Come out from among them and don’t go into their house. Don’t live under the spell of their charm. Listen, don’t even dabble in darkness, but walk in the light. God has an answer for the sorcerers in society.

Revelation 21:8 “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”
