The Best Lions

Al Qaeda continues sowing its mayhem. I wonder how they possibly can think that they shall reap anything else.

But that’s not the point of this post.

I just read this over at Yahoo! News:

The Qaeda group led by America’s deadliest foe in Iraq on Thursday claimed bombings that ripped through luxury hotels in Jordan’s capital and killed 57 people.

In Wednesday night’s closely synchronized attacks, two bombs exploded while crowds were celebrating weddings, leaving blood and destruction at Amman’s Grand Hyatt and the nearby Radisson SAS. A third blast targeted a Days Inn hotel.

Al Qaeda in Iraq, led by Jordanian militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, said in a statement on an Islamist website that “a group of our best lions” had carried out the attacks.

Their best lions blow themselves to bits with the intent of killing a bunch of others, most (if not all) of whom have done them no personal harm.

We can criticize them and mock them and condemn them for that. (They certainly deserve no glory or commendation for such deeds.)

But I ask you — What do your faith’s best lions do and with what intent?

And — Are you one of your faith’s best lions?

  1. Our best lion became a lamb and suffered the most humiliating death any man or woman could experience. Stripped naked and hung on a tree, he endured the scorn of his countrymen and enemies. Then he died.

    Sunday’s a-comin’. And He’s still a lion.

Comment? Sure!

Above all, love God!
