I walked in the door after being away for a day and Carl was there to jump up and welcome me. I admit that I love the unsolicited encouragement that both he and Bee lavish upon me, no matter how long I have been away.
Dogs are so wonderful when it comes to demonstrating their unconditional love for us humans. Particularly when we don’t deserve it. They don’t keep a record of wrongs. All they want is to receive a little attention and stroking of the fur and they’re good to go.
“But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.” (Hebrews 3:13)
Wow, if we could take a lesson from our four legged friends, everyone would be in such a better place. If every day, we could encourage (pour courage) into the ones that are closest to us, what a better world we would live in.
