Talking Donkey Reports Animal Abuse in the Bible

Mom and I were reading an article today in the Pet Heaven Herald News.  Little Inka, (miniature Schnauzer) who lives in Pet Heaven wrote an article that she had met the Talking Donkey in the Bible.  Do all of you remember when Balaam beat his donkey and then actually hit him with a stick?  The donkey saw an Angel in the middle of the road who was blocking Balaam from going thru.  The donkey was protecting him.  You can read the story for yourself, but the donkey was telling Inka that this animal abuse was reported in the Bible and the donkey actually said to Balaam…“What have I ever done to you that you have beat me these three times?”  This man realized what the donkey was doing for him  and he was forgiven.

As we think about this story, there are lots of messages here.  Animals are still used by God to help us….Protect us…..comfort us and on and on.  God was so provoked at this situation he actually gave the donkey “speech”.

In todays world, God still gives “speech” to our pets.  It is done through their eyes, their ears and their reactions and many more ways.  We as animal lovers can tell what they think.  It’s always about “love” for you and wanting the best for you. 

Inka reported….Don’t abuse animals!!!!!!!  Not a good idea….God doesn’t like it!!!!!!!!     AMEN!!!

The Babe doesn’t like it either….chat later.
