Feed the dog! Scoop the poop! Get fresh water for the cat! Our pets require work and lots of it. Does God really care whether you remember to feed your goldfish? Check out these verses:
“A righteous man cares for the needs of his animal, but the kindest acts of the wicked are cruel.” Proverbs 12:10 (NIV)
“… and he (Jesus) was in the desert forty days, being tempted by Satan. He was with the wild animals, and angels attended him.” Mark 1:13 (NIV)
Jesus understands the connection we have with our pets. Our animals depend on us for their care and I believe it pleases God when we show love and kindness to His creatures. How will you do that today? Let me know! We are taking care of Zuno by putting medicine in his ear. He has an ear infection. He doesn’t like the ear drops, but we know it is best for him and we want him to get well.
