A DOG'S LIFE

As we live through swine flu, global warming, failing economies, narco-wars, kidnappings and earthquakes I looked at my dogs and desired to have a DOG’S LIFE. See, dogs have no worries, no payroll to meet, no bills to pay or accounts to review. Dogs don’t have to work, don’t have a boss, and could care less if the other dogs in the yard like them or not. They have no deadlines to meet, they prefer to let the day, or their nose, take them where they may. This carefree life makes them generous and friendly always ready to treat themselves to a quick lick, and us too, for that matter. The sun could fall, the dollar could collapse, disease could rule, and the dog’s life would go on unchanged. If the food ran out they would be content to sleep until the very end, always friendly enough to share a lick and tail wag with a friend or passerby. The only problem is that if I had a Dog’s Life I would not have the chance to know Jesus as my Savior. So give me swine flu, global warming, failing economies, narco-wars, kidnappings and earthquakes so long as I can have Jesus too! You see having Jesus makes all of these other things light, making life carefree, allowing us to live friendly and generous lives. Jesus is and always will be the answer.

I used to live the dog's life. I guess you could picture coming to Jesus as the ultimate flea bath - you're only dipped once(in the blood of the Lamb) but the fleas(sin) will never live on you again(Rom. 6:11).
P.S. I no longer chase my own tail around - I have purpose in Jesus! :)

God Bless you

In Christ,

A Dog's life does sound good, but I'm with you about Jesus. Not to mention the ability to use my thumbs makes me happy I'm a human. ;)
