Proverbs 12:10 A righteous man regards the life of his animal.
I truly believe God made animals for us. What an amazing creation God has made. Especially our pets. How we grow to love them so much. God allowed us to love them such. A right person, one who has been made in Gods image, takes time to know (regard) their animals, to care for them the best possible way. To give them the best possible life they could have while with us. Truth be told, these lovable pets give more to us than we ever give them. Thank you LORD for allowing us to have such great experiences with our pets. I have found in life, that love is love, regardless of whether its a person or your pets, which God has placed in us. I find it impossible, to not regard the well being of my animals as a christian.
