Verse of the Day
The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them. [Isaiah 11:6 – NIV]
It is befitting that today’s passage is brought to life in a clever Travelers Insurance TV commercial featuring wild animals hanging out at a watering hole in the African desert. They’re having a great time convening with one another—meerkats riding on floating alligators, baboons performing for hyenas, and lions mingling with zebras, all in complete harmony. The commercial is part of Travelers’ “Take the scary out of life” campaign and, when you think about it, what better describes the Second Coming? That’s because during the age of the New Heaven and the New Earth all sorts of amazing, wonderful things happen. But then, with Jesus our King leading us, how could we expect otherwise? Hallelujah to the King of kings! And He shall reign forever and ever!
