Have you ever watched a family of raccoons as they dottle around? The babies follow their mom around very closely and are almost in perfect step with her. My neighbor had a dead tree in her yard with a hole that I had seen some in at one time; I saw a video recently that reminded me of the family that lived in it. In the video, the babies had followed the mom up the tree to get back into their hole. They had no fear and they waited patiently for her to help them get back into their home. If they were having a hard time, she would grab them by the scruff of their neck and pull them in. It was their lack of fear that amazed me the most. They knew no different, it was the way they were raised. If we would follow Jesus as closely at these babies followed their mom, we would lose our fear of man. Jesus always has us and will grab us by the scruff of the neck when things get rough, and draw us close.
And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Matthew 10:28
