This isn't some strange animal, but one that you have seen before. I put the way you normally see him (or her) at the bottom of the page to show you this is not some monster. This animal had an disease which caused all of its hair to fall out, creating this scary looking appearance. So, this is the way the animal looks on the inside. I wonder, what do PEOPLE look like on the inside? How many times have I thought I knew someone, only to have them do something so outrageous that I was amazed that they were capable of their actions. Yet, God knows us; beyond just what's under our skin, but right to the very heart of our being. Listen to the words of David to his son Solomon.
1 Chronicles 28:9 WEB (R)
(9) You, Solomon my son, know the God of your father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind; for Yahweh searches all hearts, and understands all the imaginations of the thoughts: if you seek him, he will be found by you; but if you forsake him, he will cast you off forever.
God knows everything about us and loves us anyway. Every thought, every action, every intention; from the very best to our most horrible, every single one. Which of course is why we must try our best to seek and to follow him. Any other course of action is very, very dangerous. Something to think about on this cold wintry night. By the way, look at the picture below to see the animal before it became sick.
