Last month, a Grizzly bear crashed through a window in a Kimberley B.C. home and scared the daylights out of Niki Traverse and her family. Awakened by the family dog, Niki’s husband killed the bear with his hunting rifle. Magnificent and wild, the Grizzly bear is in trouble. Conservation experts believe that increased population forces these bears from their deep wilderness habitats… their close encounters with humans are altering their lifestyle, forcing them to seek food from humans, and making them lazy. Apparently even Grizzlies, like us love the good life,. But in the case of humans, there is a down side. The good life of plenty, pleasure and prosperity can dull the sense and cause us to forget Amos’ warning, “prepare to meet your God.” Jesus still invites us to do that, saying, “Behold I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in,.” This meant His willingness to forgive and receive all who recognize their spiritual need and come to Him in faith.
