Caution in a Wild, Wild World

We have some guests staying with us for the next few months, and they include two dogs and a cat. We already have two cats, so you might imagine that our wild kingdom is in a state of adjustment. It reminds me that living in a so-called civilized society sometimes numbs us to the reality that it’s a dangerous world. Animals recognize the potential threats around them, and they proceed with caution. Perhaps too much fear, but better safe than sorry seems to be their approach. Humans, on the other hand, often fail to recognize the dangers around us until it’s too late, usually because it’s cloaked as something fun and exciting. That’s the way of sin. Guard your heart. Let in only what honors God.
