“Greater love has no one than this,
that someone lay down his life for his friends.”
John 15:13 English Standard Version
Ginger was a wounded dog when our son, Michael, rescued her. In fact, we weren’t sure she was going to last in our house. She hid from us, barked at us and tried to escape from us (that’s another story).
But that was only a mask.
It didn’t take long for Ginger to become an important member of our family which she remains today. I credit Michael for her transformation. He loves her unconditionally. And in return she loves us unconditionally.
Jesus laid down his life for us.
It is God’s unconditional love for us that has transformed us from “wounded dogs” to loyal followers. It is this unconditional love of God at work through us that changes the lives of people around us.
By the way, there is mounting scientific evidence
that petting your dog lowers your blood pressure.
