Our watchdogs

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the Devil

prowls around like a roaring lion looking for
someone to devour
(1 Peter 5:8).

 

Our two brother dogs are Jojo and Bruno,

Both of them are watchful and never say, ‘no!’

God has made them to guard us and our house,

Hear a strange noise? One might catch a mouse.

 

Ever ready to obey whatever the master’s command,

With obedient heart they follow without any demand.

Day after day, they are roaming and playing around,

Runs after the birds, eating their food on the ground.

 

Both Jojo and Bruno have this kind of sensitive ears,

Ready to devour you! Be watchful and no more tears!

So friendly yet sometimes not, especially to a stranger.

‘Beware of the dogs!’ A posted plate to avoid a danger!

 

Friends, are we sensitive to the work of God every day?

Are we watchful like our two dogs at any time of the day?

Are we ready to answer God’s call like Jojo and Bruno?

Our dear God is a kind of Boss that likes everything pronto!
