My dad uses this story quite so often, that it got imbibed in me.
How long does a cat take to bounce back,when fallen into gutter? A quick nano second, it will scamper as fast as it could.
A pig, will wallow in it. Who are you? dad would ask.
You cast your burdens, and scamper away. No more thinking about the incident. What not, how could. You live for the day. One day at a time.
Of course the cat would lick its whole body, even if it was only a tip of the tail that was in the gutter. And for that, as we soak in God's presence, he transforms us by the renewing of our mind.
Hallelujah! That's why his yoke is easy. 😎
