When my wife and I were living in Indiana a few years ago, a mysterious critter somehow got trapped in our garage. It must have wandered in when we left the door open. I never saw it, but we decided that it must have been a groundhog. Whatever it was, it must have had some powerful claws. In order to escape, the varmint managed to dig up enough of the concrete floor to squeeze underneath the door! I’m glad I didn’t have to come face-to-face with that critter!
Creatures will normally do whatever it takes to get out of a dangerous situation. They will expend a lot of energy and go to great lengths in order to save themselves.
It’s a shame that more people don’t take their eternal salvation so seriously. Especially when all you have to do is trust Jesus and follow him.
“With many other words he warned them; and he pleaded with them, ‘Save yourselves from this corrupt generation.’ Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day.”—Acts 2:40-41.
