Respect the Danger

That's her. Must have been a nice hat.

That’s her.
Must have been a nice hat.

I just saw a video of a woman who climbed over a fence at the Toronto Zoo to retrieve her hat that had fallen into the tiger’s cage. After successfully rescuing her hat, a man in the crowd berated her, calling her a “moron” and telling her that she had just set a terrible example for the children there.

What she did was indeed a foolish act. She should have shown more respect for such a powerful predator as a tiger. Her story could very well have had a tragic ending.

Other people face a tragic ending because they don’t understand the danger that Satan poses. They treat him much too casually and therefore put themselves in harm’s way. 

“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith…”—1 Peter 5:8-9.
