I isn’t that crazy? To think that God not only made all these hundreds and hundreds of animals, but he also designed them to teach us things. Animals don’t speak with words but they have something to say. By just observing them, we can learn from them. They can teach us useful things by watching and studying them. Let’s take a horse for example. You ride a horse make it walk, trot,canter, or jump obstacles when commanded. You direct the horse with the reins and your legs just sitting pretty in the saddle why the horse does all the hard work. The horse does not complain or refuse; rather, she keeps working on. Pretty amazing. You reward it by providing a nice place for it to live with lots of grain,hay, and green grass to munch on. Horses are hard workers. And we can learn from it.
Colossians 3:23 says, Work willingly at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people.
It’s a great first, and I bet horses would like it if they could understand it because they are such hard workers!
What about you? Can you learn from animals? What might the animals in your life say to you? Try observing the animals around you and think about how they act. Then read the Bible and see if God just may use an animal to teach you anything thing or to!?!
