June 02 – Hero Dog

tfh sunriseThe Toronto Star reported the following true story. An off duty ambulance Attendant, walking his St. Bernard dog near a Toronto dock wharf, tripped, hit his head, and fell unconscious into the water. Fortunately for him, his dog jumped in and holding his master’s head above water, dragged him to the dock ladder. The man came too, called for help and was pulled out. A firefighter friend, was so impressed, he asked the man to bring what became known as the “hero dog” to the fire station. While the dog acted on instinct, it’s act illustrates the most heroic rescue of all time. Luke, in his gospel wrote, “the Son of man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” Then Paul explained what happens when Jesus finds us, saying, “God demonstrates His own love for us ,in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” All who sincerely ask, receive the gift of eternal life He offers.
