I have come to understand a significant difference between my two dogs. Not just in breed and temperament, it’s deeper than that.
Logan, my Husky, is intelligent and independent. By breed they are affectionate with everyone but do not need to constant attention. A husky curled snugly close beside you means he is interested in keeping safe. He wants to be secure, but at the same time he is letting you know that he is perfectly capable of handling anything that comes up.
Corey, the Golden Retriever, acts as though he deeply believes that he has been born to show love and affection to his people. Even in his old age, and stiff joints, he responds to me when called or even if he thinks I want him near. He waits patiently for me and never tires of resting his head on my lap. When he looks into my eyes I can almost hear him quote Ruth 1:16: “Don’t force me to leave you; don’t make me go home. Where you go, I go; and where you live, I’ll live. Your people are my people, your God is my god; where you die, I’ll die, and that’s where I’ll be buried, so help me God—not even death itself is going to come between us!”
As I contemplate both of them, I wonder about how I show my love to God. Our main reason for being created is to love and worship Him. I know I have been like Logan, wanting to be safe but keeping my distance. In my heart I deeply desire to be like Corey: always ready with my eyes full of love, a willing heart and my ear turned towards my Master’s voice.
Which one are you?
