From Hog Hell to Hog Heaven

I came across this delightful news story today . Find it here

I grew up on a small farm and we often had pigs. I have always liked pigs because they are very intellegent creatures. Studies reveal they are actually smarter than dogs !

I believe that this little 'piggy' knew that he was heading for Hog Hell. He had his wits about him and figured there must be better place ! So he did what he had to do - get out of the truck taking him straight to 'death' .
He risked the life he was going to lose anyway ... and wiggled his way out of the truck .. hoping there would be someone to save him!

Of course there was... and now he is getting the best of care, destined to live the rest of his life in Hog Heaven !

I'm sure I don't have to spell out the analogy here....
Seems to me this Wiggles is a lot smarter than many humans.

Every human being - by default- goes through life in a 'truck' driven by Satan on its way to a sure hell.
The moment we are born - we are guarenteed to die !

If only we have our wits about us to figure out that that there has to be an escape. Isn't it worth risking all we have to find it ???
If we just 'wiggle' our way out of the default truck ... will there be Someone to find us ?? Yes, of course, His name is Jesus. He will pick us up, clean us up, put us back together again....and He guarentees that we will never go 'to market' . Instead we are offered His protection until we come into our eternal Home to live forever in a beautiful place !!

Mat 16:25 "For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it."

While not exactly kosher, it is a great analogy Julie!

What a great story! I love your analogy too!
ps. I meandered here through Lovella's blog list. I'm glad I visited :)

I'm hitchhiking this life right now I think and the truck often stops to pick me up just to drop me off periodically.

Right now, I'm lost. No trucks no Rescuer in sight...now what?

I had to smile about the "kosher" comment, but yes- what an object lesson, is right!
