The Chameleon and the Rhino

Jared, one of our interns, preached this morning. He talked about being called as Christians to live dangerous lives and used the illustration of being like rhinos. Rhinos cannot see very far ahead, but when they charge (without knowing what's very far ahead), they can still do great damage. Chameleons, on the other hand, weigh every little step and move slowly. And they catch only a single fly at a time.

It is said that a person is like their pets. I hope I'm not like Elliot/BarraBarra and too slow and measured in everything I do! I want to move mountains through faith in Christ--not merely catch little flies...
