Face to face with the Lion

The zoo allows us to come face to face with wild animals in a way that we would never be able to do in the wild. The video of this three year old little girl going nose to nose with a lion illustrates this very well.

Of course we call them wild animals for a reason.

1 Peter 5:8 reminds us that we face an adversary that has been compared to a lion.

"Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour."

It can be very easy to forget just how dangerous it is to be around evil and sinful things. We might think that we are protected like that little girl but there is no safety glass to keep us from getting mauled. It is best if we just try and steer as clear as possible from these things.
