I was driving home the other day on Newby’s Bridge Road. I had come upon a curve in the road (one of millions). When I got about half way through the curve, I saw a cat standing directly in the middle of my lane–facing directly toward my car. Not crossing, not moving, just standing–stunned I suppose.
“What in the world is this cat doing?”, I thought within a nanosecond. And then I saw it. Scurrying across the other lane, moving quickly away from the cat…was a mouse.
And in that moment I was reminded of the Enemy’ s predictable, and yet all too productive plan: To lure us with whatever means necessary straight into the path of our oncoming demise.
It reminded me to be wise; to be careful what I’m willing to chase.
