Welcome to Word-Filled Wednesday at SandwichINK. We're taking a break this week from our Bible Memory verses activites for grandparents and their grandchildren. We should be back to it next week, but this week we're going to take a look at…
Three things that are stately in their stride,
four that move with stately bearing.
A lion mighty among the beasts who retreats before nothing,
a strutting rooster,
and a king with his army around him.
Proverbs 30:29-31 NIV
Why roosters you might ask? Because Barb at Bella Vista is throwing a fun Rooster Blog Party this Friday, August 6. It's the second annual, "Show Us Your Roosters Blog Party!" It sounded like so much fun, I had to join in. And, you can consider this an official invite to SandwichINK on Friday for ROOSTERS and the never-admit-to-aging Baby Boomers Generation. Also, if you have your own blog, do pop over to Bella Vista TODAY to sign up and join in the fun. (Today is the deadline. 🙂 )
In the meantime, I decided to search Crosswalk.com for Bible verses on roosters or cocks. Of course, I found all the verses about the cock crowing three times when Peter denied the Lord. That one I know so well and it is so very moving and full of hope – that Peter could blow it so much and be forgiven…
I chose this one, however, because, even though I have read the book of Proverbs so many times, I never really paid attention to this until today. Today, because of the blog party, my eyes were open a bit wider for this verse. I was intrigued that the rooster and the goat were likened to the lion and the king. Very interesting! And logically or non-logically, it also filled me with hope. 🙂
