Kim and I are working on our front porch railings which are rotting. We're measuring and planning what wood we need to make 'er look brand new! (we live in Tennessee right?) Then, all of a sudden, there is a small dog next to us.
We posted flyers throughout our neighborhood entitled: "Dog Found" followed by a description. 3:45pm Matt leaves for meeting at Belmont University. 5pm Matt receives text from Kim: "Damn dog peed the floor twice!" And come to find out he tried to do male dog things to our wonderful dog Joey! And he's way too energetic and yappy for us.
Needless to say, how could anyone on earth love such an unlovable stray dog? How could someone find it in their heart to love this?!
Yet, are we not something similar to our Lord? Surely, there are many similarities of this orphan to us? How does the Almighty God take us into His home, wash our feet, feed us, and claim us as His own? We have such a hard time even doing this for a stray dog!
