Beware of Dog
Peaches came with a warning. "Peaches may bite." Always good to know. Fortunately, Peaches was all love and kindness to me while she was here. Often with small dogs, they protect the person they are closest to, which may include biting anyone who gets too close to their "person." It may be flattering to the person being protected, but it's less than charming to everyone else. It's certainly possible for us as people to become overprotective of our "stuff", which may include certain relationships. When we get in that mode, we may snap at anyone or anything that may interfere. This is not how we should behave. Insecurities bring out the worse in us. All we have is given to us through Father God. What we do with them, and how we value them, are up to us. Having no other gods before the One True God, keeps us from idolatry. Keep first things first. It doesn't knock out the quality of our other things. It makes those things more in focus and better. What do you let get in the way of your relationship with God?
