A young couple, great dog lovers, lost their adorable dog, which they rescued from the streets.
They wanted the dog back badly and they went round the neighbourhood posting a sign with a photo of the dog. The sign read:
- Black and tan dog of Poodle and German Shepherd descent.
- Missing left hind-leg
- No hair on rump
- Blind in left eye
- Broken tail
- Recently neutered
- Too old for tricks
- Might bite if cornered
- Answers to the name of “Lucky”
PONDER AND CONSIDER
Now that’s unconditional love! It is a love that is not afraid to embrace defects, imperfections and brokenness. And the dog, well, I suppose it is indeed “lucky.”
And what about you and me? To know that we are embraced by a God who is tenderness and whose mercy is fresh every morning, a God who is always bigger than our biggest failure, wound, defect or sin, birthing us and loving us into being afresh on the pulse of each new dawn!
