Choose Wisely

The LORD God said: "It is not good for the man to be alone.  I will make a suitable partner for him." So the LORD God formed out of the ground various wild animals and various birds of the air, and he brought them to the man to see what he would call them; whatever the man called each of them would be its name.  The man gave names to all the cattle, all the birds of the air, and all wild animals; but none proved to be the suitable partner for the man.

Yes, it is not good for man (or woman) to be alone.  So, God gave it a try and created all the animals, but “none proved to be suitable for the man.”  Ah…but there is one animal absent from the list that the biblical writers missed – one that indeed is a suitable partner or companion.    Forget about the cattle, and the birds, and the wild animals.  Lest we forget there is no better pal and a source of comfort, companionship and love than a dog! 

Men, what’s our choice: a good woman or a good dog?    Choose wisely.
