The Wounded Thief

 In Uncategorized

I work as a Physical Therapist in a rural community enjoying a wide variety of challenges. Early on while working in Alaska, I treated a young thief who had been apprehended after firing numerous shots at some heroic police. I will spare the details involving the incident, but he was eventually apprehended alive with numerous life-threatening wounds.

     Loving to engage in small talk, I asked him many questions about how he picks his homes to burglarize. To my surprise, he described in detail how to get into just about every home style I know of in less than 15 seconds. The criminal mind is a pathetic place to live. However, he did have one home that he would never break into. A home with a dog!

     Picture a hardened criminal with tattooed tears on both sides of his face signifying himself as a murderer to his gang, tough as nails but scared of even a poodle! Evidently, at some point he had been bitten in the past and the teeth that hurt the worst are the ones that spring from nowhere.

     I love to hear stories about how dogs have done some selfless act of home defense. I think God made these amazing creatures to give us a glimpse of His desire to be our protector and ever faithful friend and I’m reminded of this.

Psalm 127:1 “Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain.”

But, I love that God can work through your family guardian. What’s your home defense system!
