“As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance, but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; because it is written, ‘You shall be holy, for I am holy’ (1 Pet. 1:14-16).
Have you ever been to an animal shelter to look for a pet? There are many cute and cuddly dogs and cats, who are well-trained and would make excellent pets found there. There are others, however, for whatever reason, that bark and may try to bite you, who exhibit anti-social behavior. Most people usually pass them by, but there can be potential in them, if you look past what they are and think of what they can become. Cleaning them up and training them not to be a menace to themselves and humans, some can go through a transformation that offers company and enjoyment for years to come.
