Have you learned something positive from watching animals?

Have you heard about Scarlett, a cat, that rescued her five children (kittens) out of a fire in spite of her serious injuries? Can we learn something from Scarlett or other animals? Notice these verses: Proverbs 6:6 New International Version (NIV) 6 Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise! Matthew 6:26 New International Version (NIV) 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Have you learned something from watching God's creatures?

What's interesting about the verses you chose is that they're almost contradictory. The first tells us to get off our tushies and be productive. The second tells us that God will provide for us even when we can't be productive. As for animals, I've learned to be calm and let others know that you mean them no harm. Horses became your friends when they know you are not a predator. I think it's the same with people. Especially in this era, many see others as "potential enemies." If you show them, perhaps through friendly conversation, that you are not the enemy, their defenses will drop, and you can be constructive together.

Ants can teach us industriousness, discipline, and putting something away for a rainy day. Birds can teach us that we never need to despair as God can provide for us under all circumstances. Birds are also very hard workers, they get up early and search hard for food. Thanks for your observations on horses. We can lean from them!

I have see all kinds of animals respond to human kindness but we are now living in an unbalanced world since Noah's flood and while we can learn much from animals we have to be realistic and be cautious with many animals. Has Molly taught you anything?

@1hopefulman I've had two dogs and both were so happy to see me when I got home from work. They don't demand anything from you, other than to go out and do their business or have food and water in their bowl. Yet, they will gladly take anything you want to give them - especially a car ride. They both loved to just hang out with me and loved those tummy rubs too. Rascal was the dog I had the longest - 14 years and we would get into a conversation every night. It was so funny. My barking like a dog and he answering. Pip didn't play that game, but she was such a great companion. It was a sad day for me when I had to put them down. Rascal 6 or 7 years ago and Pip this past January. It was the hardest day in my life.

You are welcome! It seems that God has hidden some wisdom and delights in creation and we learn so much by observing. Job 12:7 New International Version (NIV) 7 “But ask the animals, and they will teach you, or the birds in the sky, and they will tell you;

I think sometimes animals have more compassion than humans. We saw a line of ducks crossing the pasture behind our house and at the end of the line, the littlest ones couldn't keep up. The very last one and the tiniest of all just sat down, too exhausted to go on. The little one that was a ways ahead of him turned around, saw his buddy in distress, waddled back to him, sat down beside him for a minute until they both could get up and head towards the other ducks. It was just amazing the concern that little duckling showed for his friend. I wished a thousand times we had been able to film it.
