Something Was Living In His Fish Tank For Two Years And He Had No IdeaJesus Daily
Have you ever been in the ocean and thought, â€śI wonder what might be lurking nearbyâ€ť? I certainly have, and I am not the only one. Many avoid the ocean because of what may be lurking beneath the surface.
The ocean is an easy thing to avoid, but what if the monsters of the deep had found their way into your home? What would you do? For the person behind the camera, that is exactly what happened and you will NEVER BELIEVE what he found!
At one point in the video, the person behind the camera states, â€śI canâ€™t believe I havenâ€™t seen him forâ€¦ for, 2 years!â€ť Watch now to discover what YOU say đź™‚
You might ask now, â€śHow could someone miss something so BIG?â€ť or you might say, â€śI would NEVER miss something so HUGE!â€ť For most of us, an honest reflection of our lives will likely reveal a moment in time when we failed to see what was right in front of us. Perhaps it was an important life decision or an abusive relationship needing called off. Whatever the case may be, you likely have (at least) one moment in your life where you can look back and say, â€śWhy didnâ€™t I see that sooner? It was so OBVIOUS!â€ť As the popular saying goes, â€śHindsight is 20/20.â€ť
Could you think of a personal example? I did, and its stories exactly like yours and mine that highlight the importance of having an additional pair of attentive and loving eyes that are both able and willing to highlight the obvious for us when we fail to see it for ourselves. What I am talking about is the fundamental need, of every person, to have a good friend. A good friend will not shy away highlighting our poor life-choices. Indeed, a good friend will always want what is best for us, even if what is best is something that we do not (or will not) desire for ourselves.
When we fail to express proper vigilance, we can miss things: BIG things! During these times, we need a good friend to help us see what is right in front of us. Christ teaches that the greatest form of love is to lay oneâ€™s life down for a friend. Do you have a good friend and (perhaps more importantly) are you a good friend?
Dr. Taborâ€™s 3 favorite Bible verses on friendship
1. â€śThere is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends,â€ť John 15:13. Never take your friendships for granted. Value your friends and always look for ways to serve them.
2. â€śA man of too many friends comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother,â€ť Proverbs 18:24. Understand the difference between an acquaintance and a friend. A friend will always be there for you even if being there for you means doing something for you that you may not like (think of a person that schedules an intervention for a drug-addicted friend).
3. â€śIron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another,â€ť Proverbs 27:17. A good friend would never willfully allow you to miss something like the giant creature from the video!
