Jesus Wept & God Sees Our Sackcloth
“Jesus wept” John 11:35 (NKJV)
“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” John 15:13 (NIV)
Randy Alcorn, in his book called “Heaven,” believes that animals will be present in the Kingdom of Heaven. C. S. Lewis, the famous Christian author of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe series also believed that pets go to heaven. I sure hope so! I have had many wonderful dogs in my life and would love to see them again. Sadly, I had to put down a sweet dog this week and she is sorely missed.
I see dogs as a lesson in unconditional love. Many folks mistreat and abuse their dogs and yet, their love, loyalty and desire to please always seems to remain. I thank God for the companionship He gave us with pets, but for me my heart has always been drawn to man’s best friend, the dog.
