God’s Pet

chaney01 Dog one: Owner comes home, jumps for joy, wags tail, follows owner around house sniffing him and licking him and being excited.

Owner pats him and takes dog to backyard. Owner throws ball, dog chases it, picks it up brings it back and repeats 10 times. Owner praises dog for fetching ball, pats dog and gives him a hug.

Owner notices dog has pulled washing of line and torn up shirt during the day. Owner scolds dog and tells him he is a naughty dog. Owner stops playing with dog, cleans up mess and goes inside.

One hour later owner returns to yard, feeds dog, refills water bowl, sits with dog, pats him and they watch the sunset together.

   Dog Two: Owner comes home, dog nowhere to be found. Owner searches and finds dog hiding. Owner speaks encouragingly to dog and tries to entice him out to play. Dog finally comes out reluctantly and stands with tail between legs while owner tries to pat and give affection. 

Owner coaxes dog into backyard and throws ball. Dog ambles towards ball and brings back with head hung low.

Owner notices dog has pulled washing of line and torn up shirt during the day. Owner scolds dog and tells him he is a naughty dog. Owner stops playing with dog, cleans up mess and goes inside.

One hour later owner returns to yard, feeds dog, refills water bowl, sits with dog, pats him and they watch the sunset together.

Dog sits next to owner during sunset worrying that owner is still angry. Dog’s eyes are droopy and teary, head is down, each time the owner pats him he cringes and worries.

Owner walks back inside and dog goes over to food bowl. Dog looks at food and panics. What if the owner doesn’t feed him tomorrow? What if this food has to last a week? Should he eat it all or just have a nibble? What if the owner does feed him tomorrow and he hasn’t finished today’s portion? Will it rot?

Dog slumps down next to food bowl thinking life is just too hard!!

Conclusion: We are the sons and daughters of God but it may help you to think of yourself as God’s pet just for a moment. He loves you! HE just wants you to be happy, have fun, don’t worry…He will take care of you!

Yes, if you do something wrong He will correct you. You may even have to endure consequences. Maybe you will be ties up from now on instead of left to tear clothes off the line. But he still wants to sit with you and pat you and enjoy being with you.

Find the joy in leaning on Him and not your own understanding. Live by grace and then you can worship him freely, which is what we were created for!!
