Deborah and I visited our local animal refuge centre last week. There we met animals and pets who had been abandoned or could no longer be cared for by their owners. We tried to speak to each one but the responses were different. The horses could not stop chewing the cud, the dogs just barked at us but the cats and kittens were willing to play endlessly.
Thinking about abandoned animals I realised that as children of God, we will never be abandoned or deserted. It doesn’t matter how old we are or how useless, He will continue to love us. Comforting thought.
