And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives.
I’ve noticed that a lot of people treat their dogs as though they were humans. They dress them up in humiliating outfits. They buy food for them that looks like people food because they think their dogs will actually appreciate that. And worst of all, they push their dogs around in strollers.
The reality is that a dog would prefer to just do what dogs do, like eat roadkill, drink toilet water, and chase cats. That’s because you can’t change the nature of an animal. The Bible even says, “Can a leopard take away its spots?” (Jeremiah 13:23 NLT).
That brings us to a question: Can people change, or are we just victims of fate?
