Have you ever been protected by a dog hero?
Animal heroes can be inspiring. I grew up watching Lassie shows on TV, so I expect the dogs I love to be protective and loyal. One of my little dogs actually nipped the ankle of our very nice neighbor lady who came to borrow a cup of sugar. We never figured out why our dog felt the need to protect us from our neighbor.
Dogs can be a little funny sometimes. They can be heroes and heroines, and they can be scrawny little villains. Still, I either want to laugh at them or just hug them. (Except when they run through the woods and get stickers in their hair.)
But one thing a dog can’t protect us from is self-deceit. Join me on my devotional blog, Seek God With Me, as I discuss how we deceive ourselves.
