Animals in the Bible

Job 12:7-10
7 But ask now the beasts, and they shall teach thee;
and the fowls of the air, and they shall tell thee:
8 or speak to the earth, and it shall teach thee:
and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto thee.
9 Who knoweth not in all these
that the hand of the Lord hath wrought this?
10 In whose hand is the soul of every living thing,
and the breath of all mankind.

I have always loved animals, even before becoming a follower of Christ. Though I have had few pets in my lifetime, I can honestly say that I have loved each one whole-heartedly. Each has had something to teach me about simplicity, trust and uncomplicated love.

Today I found a website on animals in the Bible that I found really inspiring. I thought I’d post the link here as others may find it uplifting and edifying too. The site is run by a retired doctor in the south-west of England who has, like me, always been fascinated by nature. After his conversion, he understood from the Bible that God and Jesus had created all things with wisdom and care, and he was filled with worship and praise for what the Father and Son had created together (John 1:3, Proverbs 8:30-31).
