What can you learn from the life of a turtle?
Mike was out mowing one day and found a little Box Turtle in the yard just simply living his little life to the fulliest. Then he brought it inside for the girls to play with. Quickly his little life turned from joy to being investigated by little finger, poking, patting his shell, wiping the dirt off, and then of course the pats got a little harder. Next thing you know they have flipped the little guy upside down trying to pry the shell open to make him come out. All the while I’m standing in the background making sure no real damage is being done. After they saw that he was not coming out; it became boring. It is certainly no fun if you can’t get him to run from you or get a rise out of him. Right? So off they went onto bigger things to destroy.
I’m sure the little guy was scared … Aren’t we when the enemy is after us? But greater is he that is in us. Nothing can harm his little ones. Don’t you just love him?
