Molly: by David Evans
It's cold here in Florida and the squirrels in my back yard yesterday were acting crazy! I have three oak trees, and they ran up and down, dug holes, dug up holes, chased each other, jumped from tree to tree and ran among my ferns.
As I watched two in particular, they had something going on. One ran down the tree, dug up an acorn, turned, looked up the tree at the other squirrel, as if to say, I have an acorn and you don't. The squirrel in the tree ran down and chased her (I'm assuming it was a "her") away from her spot.
She ran up the tree and sat on a knot in the tree about 3 feet up and ate her acorn. Then she gathered her tail in her little front feet as if to clean. But I know better. She looked at him (the other squirrel) then, she did this flirty thing with her tail and cleaned her stomach with her little feet. Yep, you guessed it. He, (had to be a he) came running up the tree after her.
Of course she played this game of come and see what I have, then no, you can't have it game for a few minutes, then up the tree and out of sight they both went.
"God is a spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth." John 4:24
Now, really, we know what those squirrels were after. But how do I portray my belief in God to others?
Do I speak the truth, then don't act like it? Do I say I trust and don't? Do others watching me see nothing more than flirting with my witness? When I say, come follow me, I know the Person who can help, do I run away when they start to come? I must make up my mind to do what I say I believe.
Live the Truth.
