What’s better than ‘puppy-love?’ At this size, Robi – he’s four weeks old – is completely dependent upon mother and breeder. Total dependence, and without any effort on his part. He’s dependent because he has to be – if not, he’ll die.
Too bad we find our dependence upon God, our Father, so difficult. Rather than coming to us naturally as dependence does to Robi, we find ourselves struggling against God’s large warm hand as He holds us.
Look at Robi. This puppy is relaxed in the breeder’s hand. No fear, no struggle, no squirming. Instead, a bit of ‘what’s next?’
