Once I read that in the early days animals who were to be offered for sacrifice may have actually clamored to be the ones chosen. To be given as a sacrifice to their Creator, the Awesome King of heaven, may have been considered a great honor. What a comforting thought. Very likely they knew whatever they encountered on earth that they would eventually reside in paradise as was intended for them in the first place.
There are several scripture quotes supporting the “what goes around comes around” theory.
“You reap what you sow…”
“Give and it will be given to you…”
“Whatever measure you use it will be measured back to you…”
“By the standard you judge others you will be judged . …”
Did you ever wonder if one of God’s mighty archangels might be named “Karma” ??
It occurred to me that before the fall of mankind , when things were perfect in the Garden of Eden, perhaps animals were intended to be able to converse . After all, when the serpent spoke to Eve, she wasn’t surprised or astounded it could speak. Instead, she listened and considered what it was saying. Perhaps, and hopefully so, animals in eternity will be able to express to us their thoughts and feelings and fill us in on their histories. How awesome that hug would be!
There is so much division and violence and evil in this world. People who used to act intelligent and stable are now acting and speaking like lunatics .
It’s not just politics, altbough that is the most prominent example , but it’s everywhere .
My own thoughts on this……..I now believe that hate is contageous and it spreads like a virus. It’s not even necessary to have any contact with the carriers. Simply reading comments or listening to the news can infect. It seems to numb the brain until all traces of common sense completely disappear . How sad!
I wonder how God feels as He watches the insanity . He loves each and every one of His creation and it must grieve Him intensely .
Do you ever wonder what will happen when He’s had enough???
