One day a David was walking along an isolated road when he heard something like a crying sound. He couldn’t tell for sure what the sound was but it seemed to be coming from underneath a bridge. As he approached the bridge, the sound got louder and then he saw a pathetic sight. There, lying in the muddy riverbed, was a puppy about two months old. It had a gash on its head and was covered with mud. Its front legs were swollen where they had been tightly bound with cords.
David was immediately moved with compassion and wanted to help the puppy, but as he approached, the crying stopped and the puppy snarled his lip and started to growl. But David did not give up. He sat down and started gently talking to the puppy. It took a long time but eventually the dog stopped growling and David was able to inch forward and eventually touch the dog and begin unwrapping the tightly bound cord.
David carried the puppy home, cared for its wounds, gave it food and water and a warm bed, Even with all of this, the puppy continued to snarl and growl every time David approached but he did not give up. He called the puppy Bobby.
Weeks went by and David lovingly cared for the puppy he was patient and continued to talk gently to Bobby . Then one day, as David approached, Bobby wagged his tail…
Consistent Love and Kindness had won and a lifelong friendship of loyalty and trust began.
1John 3:18 Dear Children, let us not Love with words or tongue but with Actions and in Truth.
Luke 4:18-19 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He hath anointed me to declare the gospel to the poor; He hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To declare the acceptable year of the Lord.
