Lava from Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano continues to destroy homes and threaten lives. One man told about how he helped his dog escape the dangerous lava by tossing him over a series of fences. The dog, not understanding the gravity of the situation, bit his owner and ran away. The dog did not realize that his master simply wanted to save him from destruction.
The Bible commands us to try to save people from the fires of hell. Many of them do not understand the gravity of their situation, so they may not appreciate our efforts to save them.
Let’s try to save them anyway.
“Be merciful to those who doubt; save others by snatching them from the fire…”—Jude 22-23.
