God loves animals.

As a dog mom of two rescues, I love pets. The comfort I gain from snuggling with my pups far outweighs their imperfections. But both dogs started life out with people who didn’t treat them well.

Little Sophia, only 7 pounds, spent the first two years of her life neglected in a cage. Neighbors finally called animal control, who rescued her emancipated body, weighing half of her normal weight. To this day, she shrinks in fright from strangers, even though we’ve adored her for ten years.

Rocco ended up abandoned on the street to fend for himself. When we rescued him, he needed much love and care to bring him back to health.

How people treat animals shows their heart. God created the beasts of the earth and gave us dominion over them. Treating them poorly doesn’t mirror God’s love for His creation.

Animals sense a soft heart and respond accordingly. Mistreating the beasts of the earth doesn’t reflect God’s mercy. But loving them well does.

Lord, thank You for our pets and the love they share with us. Help us care for Your creation well, honoring You with our words and actions. In all things, let us glorify You with our acts of love. IJNIP. Amen
