Our New Dog

We have a new dog.  She wasn’t exactly what I was looking for.  Her personality is too energetic and she has bad vices (nipping at heels, jumping on people, having accidents in the house).  But, because I have been spending a lot of time with her, she is growing on me.  She is a very sweet dog and there is not a mean bone in her body.

I thought about how this can apply to people who are not our favorite people.  They do things like, pick their nose, bite their fingernails, have body order, scratch in places you would rather not mention, you know who I mean.  But, when we spend time with them, the Lord seems to change our hearts.  We start seeing others through His eyes and our hearts are softened.

Take some time today and pray for those people who are not your favorites.  Then, when you run into them, your heart may have been changed enough to actually enjoy their company.  Okay, maybe not some people, but at least you won’t run the other direction when they walk by you on the street.

Bless those who are not a blessing.
