The Hyena's Meal

Like hyenas, there are people who prey upon the weak and the sick while laughing before fleeing in terror at the might of a lion.

They will have already decided that the meat of living is found in putting themselves before and above others.

As more people talk to others about becoming Christians, some will laugh at the invitation because a way of living that puts the needs of others before their own will not satisfy their idea of what it means to live. They will have already decided that the meat of living is found in putting themselves before and above others.


There are people who like to team up on a person who seems vulnerable in some way to make that person seem less than they are. This is the meat of their existence. It is not a meal to boast of, however. Like hyenas, they prey upon the weak and the sick while laughing before fleeing in terror at the might of a lion.


Now, look to a suffering animal that fights a predator until its last breath is given up to give its young time to flee, to live, and to eat another day. Think about the meal this young will have and why. Then, consider where the real meal of existence is to be found.
