I was alone at home one afternoon when there was an urgent knock at my front door. Upon opening it, I was confronted by an angry young man holding our Labrador dog by the collar. He thrust a badly cut hand at me and told me that it was a result of a bite inflicted by my dog. I offered to bathe and cover his hand, but he angrily refused and told me that he was going to the doctor and would return later.
I was shocked and shaken, but as I am learning to do, I decided to assess the situation from a spiritual perspective. I knew our dog to be gentle, good-natured, and obedient always. I replaced the picture of an injured, aggressive mortal with the man of God's creating—loved, whole, and lovable. I affirmed God's control of the situation, and sided firmly with His law of undeviating harmony. I was not trying to negate my responsibility or question the young man's story. I wished only to behold what was really going on.
