He was probably really cute! Recently a Massachusetts family discovered that the puppy they rescued on the side of the road was actually a baby coyote. The family said they found the pup wandering and distressed on the side of the road but soon realized that it wasn’t domesticated. The Cape Wildlife Centre confirmed that their rescue wasn’t a dog.
The family made the right decision to see the pup returned to the wild. As cute as the coyote was as a puppy, he was still a wild coyote and not a pet.
Staff at the Wildlife Center reminded people that anyone who spots a baby coyote or other animal alone in the wild should know its parents might be nearby – so contact a local wildlife department before intervening.
Too often believers are tempted by something that seems harmless and even cute, but they eventually discover that sin cannot be domesticated. As I’ve mentioned countless times; sin will always take you further than you want to go, it will keep you longer than you want to stay, and it will cost you more than you want to pay.
And the word of God reminds us that sin is to be avoided, not embraced.
Have a great week, and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
