It is amazing to me to watch an otherwise wild or skittish animal relax over time when I show them affection. Perhaps God called on us to love on animals and not just rule over them. Can you imagine Noah trying to get all of those animals on the ark without first having a relationship with them? Why would they pay any attention to a man unless he had paid attention to them? I don’t think it was just the power of God but the power of love. Animals deserve love too, and they love being loved by us. It’s not just dogs and cats and bunnies. I do think that most animals can be domesticated, and by that I mean willing to let down their guard and allow us to have a relationship with them, to love on them the way God intended. They don’t just want food from us. Animals need time to play and time to love, time to eat and time to rest. We are all God’s creation and that’s a beautiful thing.
