Tonight at our Drama Ministry Team meeting, we were chatting about that hysterically funny "Weiner Poopie" YouTube video I posted a couple weeks ago. One of the team members mentioned an amazing clip about a herd of water buffalo he'd seen that made a huge impression on him. When I got home I checked it out. He was absolutely right.
The video shows a group of buffalo accidentally wandering into the turf of a tribe of lions. The lions attacked a young buffalo and settled down for a nice lunch. Well, the other members of the herd had other ideas. They stepped up and saved the young animal. Click here to see this incredible film (Battle At Kruger - about 8 minutes). Be sure to stay with it, watch it unfold.
It's like a little "parable of nature" because it totally demonstrates so many of those New Testament "one another" verses:
- accept one another;
- be devoted to one another;
- honor one another;
- bear one another's burdens;
- be compassionate to one another;
- love one another.
A great analogy of the church that "gets it." The thought that came to mind: "The gates of hell shall not prevail against it."
It's an unbelievable little clip.
