A story in Numbers 22:21-33 reveals God’s love for animals. In this passage we can deduce the following:
–> God uses animals to warn us and help direct us of His will.
–> Animals have feelings.
–> The angels and by default God see how we treat animals.
–> How we treat animals reveal the condition of our souls.
–> God and His angels consider the mistreatment of animals seriously. Such treatment could warrant severe consequences – including death (by God).
Beware: If a person harms animals, that is a precursor of harm towards humans.
God values animals – we should too.
