Went to the fair today and they had a dope petting zoo! Sheep, goats, calves, donkeys, llamas too!
They had a station where you could buy food to give the animals. Of course, I, out of all people, bought some of the food to give to Gods little precious animals.
I love animals. Probably more than people. I was so eager to feed them! I wanted to take them all home today. I was thinking about how God gave mankind the charge of taking care of the earth in the very beginning and I felt good. I felt good about taking care of some animals for once.
Then I thought about how Jesus tells Peter in Matthew to feed his sheep. In this passage, Jesus was referring to people as sheep. He wanted his disciples to give the people they encountered his teachings. Jesus knew that so many people who needed him hadn't heard of him. I had to ask myself while being so enthralled by feeding actual sheep, do I feed the people? Am I giving as much effort to letting others know about what Jesus did as I should?
I know I'm getting pretty deep, but I try to let all of my experiences teach me something about Jesus! If I love feeding animals this much then I should be loving feeding people this much!
Time to get a little more barefaced!
