CELEBRATING WITH DOVES: THEY SYMBOLIZE THE HOLY SPIRIT, HOPE AND INNOCENCE---BUT WE CAUSE THEM DEATH

By Jan Fredericks

I went to the cemetery with my Mom and saw an injured or sick white dove. When I walked towards him, he slowly got up and walked slowly away. I wanted to bring it home, but reluctantly didnít. I planned to return the next day to bring him to a rehab. I was told that these birds are bought and released at weddings and other celebrations, but cannot fend for themselves. They are often left to die.

When I returned with a cat carrier (you can use a box), lined with a towel, water in a small dish, and bird seed (for these kinds of birds), I found him dead. I brought him home to bury and apologized to him and to God.

God created the dove, for Him to enjoy. May we allow them and all animals to live for their Creator.
 

Your Comments are Welcome

God's Creatures Ministry is committed to spreading God's compassion to all He has made based on The Scriptures. Although we are a Christian Ministry, we encourage all to have their own animal welfare committee in their community. We extend our resources to those who would like to learn more or begin their own God's Creatures Ministry as an extension of us. God created us to have a vegetarian diet and commissioned us to protect His animals. Instead, we have exploited them for our entertainment, fashion, appetite and useless, torturous research. These creatures have the right to live as they were created to live. Because we live IN this world, but are not OF this world, we strive to bring God's mercy and justice to all. We live in God's Kingdom now where Jesus, The Sacrificial Lamb, The Prince of Peace, The Lion of Judah reigns. We look forward to that day when all of creation will be 'set free from slavery to corruption and share in the glorious freedom of the children of God' (Romans 8:21) where a little child will lead and guide God's creatures (see Isaiah 11:5-9).
