Two short entries: “DIY? Yes!” & “Dogs of War”

After watching this short video Monday evening I decided to tackle my cloudy headlights using the method ChrisFix recommends.

 

After seeing the results, my neighbor is restoring his headlights tomorrow!

 

The Dogs of War

The next time you see your dog having a drink of water, consider this.

Gideon’s Army of Three Hundred

Judges 7

4 But the Lord said to Gideon, “There are still too many men. Take them down to the water, and I will thin them out for you there. If I say, ‘This one shall go with you,’ he shall go; but if I say, ‘This one shall not go with you,’ he shall not go.”

5. So Gideon took the men down to the water. There the Lord told him, “Separate those who lap the water with their tongues as a dog laps from those who kneel down to drink.” 6. Three hundred of them drank from cupped hands, lapping like dogs. All the rest got down on their knees to drink.

7. The Lord said to Gideon, “With the three hundred men that lapped I will save you and give the Midianites into your hands. Let all the others go home.” 8. So Gideon sent the rest of the Israelites home but kept the three hundred, who took over the provisions and trumpets of the others.

…and you know the rest of the story, right?

One thought on this passage is God turning to Gentiles after the resurrection of Christ. Jewish people considered other nations pagan, as dogs. Jesus referred to a Canaanite woman as a dog before He healed her daughter. Matthew 15: 21-28  Another possible reason is that God chose those who lapped like dogs because it represents humbleness, lowliness. Notice verse 8 says those who lapped: “took over the provisions and trumpets of the others.” Interesting.

Much love ❤
