SC: Episode 140

Show notes:

If you were traveling in the African Serengeti or the American West, would you take precautions against attacks by “Felidae Panthera?” This week on the podcast, we’re talking about lions (or more accurately, big cats)! Join Andrew for a look at 1 Peter chapter 5, and some of the parallels between real lions and “our adversary, the devil.” We’ll dive into some verses that discuss our vulnerabilities, and the weapons and safeguards the Lord has given us to avoid attack. This is another of those segments we’re sure you won’t want to miss! Additionally, we’ll start looking at our next Book(s) of the Month as we head into September…and there may even be some hints about an announcement coming up next week! All that and more, on this episode of the Sharpening Character Podcast!

    Wow! Very well put! One thing that causes a lot of cougar/lion/big cat attacks, is the fact that the victim knows that there is danger but charges ahead anyway because they think that they are invincible. As the verse goes-

    The prudent man forsees the evil and hides himself, but the simple pass on and are punished.

      Excellent point “Shades”! Yet another reason why we should be watchful–be wary of the dangers around us, and avoid the hazards of our adversary’s attacks!
