Dogs will eat anything! It has been so long since our Jake was a puppy that I had forgotten this fact, but Remus and Draco are certainly good at reminding me! It is amazing how we can feed them ample amounts of the best foods, give them plenty of treats and toys, and exercise them till we're all passed out on the grass, and yet they still manage the energy to go find the most disgusting things in the house (and yard) to munch on when they have two seconds of boredom torturing them.
I don't get it.
But yet ...
God gives us His best and finest blessings. He freed us from the bondage of sin. He gave us a mission--to seek and save the lost, to minister to His people, and to walk worthy of our calling. We have the Living Water, the Bread of Life, and the Light of the World. Yet we choose to return to the darkness of sin and to take part in those things that will condemn our souls.
We trade the promise of healthy marriages for selfishness and impurity. We spoil the innocent hearts of our children by allowing the world to tell them that the things God hates are normal and harmless. We put down our crosses and exchange them for battle axes, drawn against those we disagree with philosophically while ignoring the mandate to teach the truth in love.
Are we any better than a dog returning to its vomit? (Proverbs 26:11)
