Have you ever watched a squirrel sleep? Now that’s a question for you! As I was lazing in our hammock, I looked up to see a little squirrel wedged in a fork of the pecan tree. He was very still and looked sleepy to me. Sure enough, as I watched his little eyes closed. However, with the slightest movement in the yard those eyes immediately popped open. He was alert and ready for anything. Are we alert to the dangers around us or do we just hoe-de-doe through life with our head in the clouds?
Notice it doesn’t say “someone to snack on,” or “someone to pick at.” This is serious. To devour is as vicious as it sounds! It means to use up or destroy.
This does not mean we have to live in fear, but it does mean there is definitely an enemy seeking to take us down. Heed the advice…be alert! Gwen~
