Yesterday, my wife came home with a puppy. As one might think, puppies are cute; they’re clumsy, cuddly, and always giving you attention. Ali and I both agreed that we would “dog-sit” this puppy for a family member. As we love the opportunity to help a family member out, we completely forgot about the responsibility that comes along with this, high-energy, impatient, loud, half-trained puppy.
One night into the sitting, we walk in to a loud, overbearing shrieking bark and “accidents” (one after another). Oh and not to mention, my wife will be heading out of town, leaving me with the pup. Talk about a great lesson in patience.
1 Timothy 1:16
“But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life.”
I’ll let you know how it goes..
