Peanut our little rescue dog, and Snickers our big fluffy 15 year old cat never worry about getting fed. When one of us goes into the kitchen toward the big white box, they both come running in and stand at attention looking up to see what goodies might come out of it for them.
When Peanut gets a special snack like a small piece of cheese or maybe even a small bite of a shortbread cookie (his favorite), he gently opens his mouth and lets us put the snack up to his mouth. He never grabs for it. He knows he doesn’t have to; there’s plenty more where that came from.
Snickers and Peanut like to eat together in front of the fireplace. They each have separate plates or napkins, and know whose is whose, but a lot of times they share. They’ve taught me how our relationship is to be with the Lord.
If we would only trust God like our pets trust us. Trust Him to open His big white box and give us what we need and what makes us happy. “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Phil 4:19).
Trust Him that He’ll give us extra special snacks like shortbread cookies, “exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think” (Eph 3:20).
Trust there will always be more coming from God’s big white box then we’ll always have something to share. “Freely ye have received, freely give” (Mat 10:8).
Peanut and Snickers demonstrated a very valuable lesson on trust. And it’s almost time for another visit to the big white box.
