Our last puppy lesson is most important of all…
Protect the Home Front!
Dogs have a natural instinct to protect their territory. Even little Joey will let much larger dogs know in no uncertain terms that they better not cross his line in the sand. He doesn’t even consider that said dogs could eat him for lunch if they decide to cross the line. He will defend. He takes a stand!
Oh, that we show even a little of that tenacity in defending our faith!
“Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth,” Ephesians 6:11-14
