Do you see them?…
They’re called Camouflaged Loopers. Big blue one on the left, two smaller browns on the right.
With bits of sticky spit they glue bits of flower on their backs so they blend in.
The blue one is in the process of dropping it’s blue flower costume for a brownish yellow one to fit in on this new flower he’s decided to eat.
See the yellow and brown under the blue?
Clever little poser.
Pity. I like the blue so much better. Really makes him stand out.
How ’bout you? Are you afraid to stand out?
Are you a poser, changing who you are depending on who you’re with at the time?
Been there, done that.
Hi, I’m Gloris. I’m a camouflaged looper.
I’ve shed my good “clothes” (i.e. attitudes, behaviors) for cruder ones and my bad “clothes” for good when it’s helped me blend in.
Tsk. tsk. tsk… =[
Well, here’s the “clothes” the Bible says we should always shed and never put on:
“But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, seeing that you have put off the old self with its practices” Colossians 3:9
And here’s the clothes we should always wear no matter who we’re with. Read these verses slowly. Chew on them like you would a good flower if you were an inch worm =]
“Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.” :12 and 13.
Father, do you want me to be a Camouflaged Looper? I didn’t think so. You called me to be a child of light who always speaks the truth. (Ephesians 5:8)
Help me to always lay aside anger, wrath, slander and obscene talk. Help me to speak the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
Help me to be compassionate, kind, humble, meek and patient. Help me to put up with people’s faults and forgive them when they’re wrong.
Send me forth as a light, a beacon for you, Father. May I walk in the light as You are in the light. (1 John 5:7). In Jesus’ name — the One who never changes (Hebrews 13:8) — Amen!
Do you know Jesus? Not just about Him, but really know Him who made the camouflaged looper, the sun, moon, stars, and you?
