Lions and lambs oh my

Image result for lion in new testament

Well well what have we here. The lion on the right looks rather ill, and the lamb on the left looks a bit puzzled.  Oops, sorry, I often get these two animals confused; it’s that evolution thing, and it’s just that ya know, how animals change quicker than you can say Drudge Report.

Or maybe I have this wrong. Whoever named the lamb had issues with authority, and it was the lion who was demoted to the place of an aardvark, til he learned a thing or two about pride. Yep, the lowly lamb was one baaaad fella, cause he wanted to be king of the jungle.  But he couldn’t quite get that killing thing down, while the lion found it difficult to turn the other cheek..

For years (or millenia?) the lamb tried, but those darn clodhopper feet could not compete with the gait of the lion, and oh his voice, forget it, he was not welcome in the lionhood. But isn’t the lamb just a poor misunderstood little brother of the lion, the black sheep in the family as it were, not welcome to sit at the lions table?  Can’t we all just get along…..

Or is it much simpler, that they are different kinds? Of course, but where pray tell did these kinds have their origin?  Let’s see, for the past few thousand years (fortunately there are records of these things) a lamb has been a lamb, and had no desire to fleece the lion. ….oh my head hurts….and the lion? Yep, no desire to evolve or change into something else. How could he take this task upon himself apart from intelligence?  He could no more change himself than change a blade of grass.

The seed is in itself, and they shall reproduce after their kind. Ya gotta love the logic of God and His marvellous creatures. Why we the people can’t get it right is mind numbing.

But I like further the idea that the lion and the lamb shall lie down together. Yeah, like that happens everyday. Yet, when the curtain of natures groan shall be lifted, that will be a sight to see. Until then, careful where ye walk little lamb, cause the lion walks about, seeking whom he may devour.

(I’m not lion when I offer sincere apologies for berating the obvious, but wool do better next time)

  2. Ahh, the Lion and the Lamb! One of my favorite prints is of a woman walking between the Lion and the Lamb, as we all do, as something that speaks to the very nature of God Himself, for He is indeed, both. As gentle as a Lamb…but just the same, I wouldn’t try sticking my head in His mouth.

    The meat eater………..and the demure one who grazes and is happy with little. Yet we should also see the meat eater as the demure one in his restraint!

    Agree withya as to the nature of God Himself. We have precedence: Doth not nature itself teach you? Uh, yyep. The inspiration of both these animals as represented in the Lord is just another testament to the wisdom of scripture and the disposition of God.

    Nice read here ColorStorm and good reinforcement of God’s truth on who we are. A lion doesn’t stop being a lion because he feels like a lamb. In fact he never feels like a lamb because he is a lion!

    Loved your last line by the way…too funny…

    Reinstatement was far more difficult, but you must admit, I am a supplier of traffic, he and his customers should be thankful.

    Ah, yes, the sun would most definitely set on my little blog without your sunny effluent effusions.
