WE LIVE in a very contrasting world or should we say a world full of contrasting people.
On the one hand, we have those who spend thousands of pounds on pampering their pets beyond description and reason.
On the other hand, we have those who treat animals with horrendous cruelty and contempt.
This week the media has highlighted the mistreatment of the lions and tigers in China and South Africa. Wild animals caged for their body parts for so called medicinal reasons and others used for shooting in confined areas by game hunters.
Of course we also see the cruelty of human beings to their fellow humans in so many ways, none more so than when Jesus Christ was killed on the cross 2000 years ago.
He came to bring us a view of God’s love that is available for each one of us. The people of his day refused to hear about it and hoped that by killing him they had got rid of him for good.
We (the world) need to stop and listen to the words that came from Jesus as we read in the Bible, “A new command I give you: Love one another as I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another”.
