It was dusky dark and getting hard to see.
Mosquitoes were coming out to greet the night and it was time to be ending the walk.
A rabbit suddenly scurried out ahead of me.
A hop here.
A hop there.
Stand up on two legs.
Listen with those big, tall ears.
I have read that rabbits can hear very well.
In fact, they are thought to be able to hear a sound from two miles away.
There’s a lesson for me in all this.
In everything that I do, I need to be wise.
When things come up, I should wisely consider my choices.
My words and my actions.
Even my thoughts.
I don’t have to rush into things.
Just a hop or two might suffice.
I might need to stand up.
But, at all times, I should listen with my ears.
I should listen for wisdom and guidance from God.
Listen to what is wise and try to understand it.
