Oh To Be Wise Meditations

Amazing how the animal kingdom reflects the heart of mankind. God compares us to stubborn sheep who are lost in need of a Shepherd. Paul says to the Philippians watch out for religious leaders: Watch out for those dogs, those people who do evil, those mutilators who say you must be circumcised to be saved. Also Gal. 5:15 But if you act like wild animals, hurting and harming each other, then watch out, or you will completely destroy one another. We can act like ravenous animals many times and as King Nebuchadnezzar would know become like one both spiritual and physically. Animals when filled with their wild nature do heinous things to each other. They do not operate with our morality in mind. And so does humanity when sin, the flesh and devil are involved. We do horrible things to each other and in Gods sight. Listen to Solomon in Eccles. 3:18-22 I also said to myself, “As for humans, God tests them so that they may see that they are like the animals. Surely the fate of human beings is like that of the animals; the same fate awaits them both: As one dies, so dies the other. All have the same breath; humans have no advantage over animals. Everything is meaningless. I the love the imagery here that He paints. We think we are so above the animals but we can learn a thing or two from animals. They can show us how much we need God and also how God can give wisdom even to the most humblest of animals. Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! It has no commander, no overseer or ruler, yet it stores its provisions in summer and gathers its food at harvest. So fellow believer, free yourself, like a gazelle from the hand of the hunter, like a bird from the snare of the fowler. Without God in your life you have nothing. You a fatten sheep led to the slaughter because you refused wisdom.
