Christian the Lion

You may have already seen this, but I thought it was worth posting for those who haven't. Take a second to give it a look. Please forgive the cheesy Whitney Houston background music- I had nothing to do with it... Whether or not you're an animal lover, it's such a sweet story and one that will hopefully bless your heart.

One of the reasons I love this video so much is because of the spiritual parallel you can draw between the love this lion had for his friends, and his obvious joy at seeing them again, and the love and joy God (The Lion of Judah) feels when one who was lost returns. There is no such thing as being forgotten by God. No matter how far you've wandered, or what you've done- He remembers you with love and eagerly awaits your return. He rejoices at the very thought of holding you close to Him again. He forgives.

"...If a man owns a hundred sheep, and one of them wanders away, will he not leave the ninety-nine on the hills and go to look for the one that wandered off? And if he finds it, I tell you the truth, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off. In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost." Matt. 18:12-14

what a tremendous testimony to what God is able to do with love.

and what a great correlation you made between us and our Heavenly Father!

I've seen this video before, but still love it! I'd never thought about it in a spiritual way before.
