Wisdom From The Animals: Day 13
A giraffe’s markings on their coat are as individual as our fingerprints. This marking on the giraffe’s coat along with the small hump on their back led people to call them a camel-leopard which in turn led to their species name: camelopardalis. Giraffes don’t require much sleep. They only need 5-30 minutes of sleep in a day. They spend most of their day eating and they particularly like acacia tree leaves. Because of their height, they eat from the highest branches where few other animals can reach.
“Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.” Colossians 3:1,2
Sometimes, I keep my focus solely on things that have no real value. I go for the low hanging fruit. Life is easier that way. But when I turn my eyes upward, my vision changes. My sight adjusts and I realize I need to reach for the top. Like a giraffe, I need to go for the good stuff at the top. I need to set my heart and my sight on things above and not down low.
