What Can You Learn About Marriage from a Zebra?

Sometimes when we think about animal families, we think they are very different from our human families. Sometimes that’s true, but not always. Zebras are a great example of that. In fact, they’re pretty good role models for what marriage should be like for us. They don’t get married of course, but see if you can think of the Bible verses they model very well as you read a few fun facts.

Zebras live in family groups of adult males and females and younger offspring. Single males only stay with the heard for so long-basically for as long as they are the equivalent of teenagers. After that, they find a female and start their own family unit.

The males are in charge of keeping zebra life on track. They stand guard and also are the first to cross something like a dangerous river. The females and children only cross after a male has tried his best to pick the least dangerous place. Scientists have also discovered that the males show affection for the females and young ones and lead their families through care and concern. We might call that love icon smile What Can You Learn About Marriage from a Zebra?

The next time you see a zebra: Remember what a cool example they are for how husbands should lead their families through loving and caring for them.

Ephesians 5:28 In this same way,  husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. (NIV)

BOPs on TV

BOPs?? You’re probably wondering. BOPs is the term I use in my book for Birds of Paradise-figured it was more reader friendly than writing the long way for a whole chapter.

Anyway, just a quick note to let you know that the PBS show Nature episode this Sunday Jan 23rd is all about these beautiful and intriguing creatures. If they show even a few varieties, you’ll be amazed.

If you have the book, I suggest you re-read the chapter with your family before or after. Don’t have a copy of the book? Unless you’re in the immediate area, I probably can’t fix that before Sunday-but if you are contact me ASAP and I’ll see what I can do icon smile BOPs on TV

The Creation Inspiration with BOPs? Hint-one is in its name. There are probably others. If you watch the show and come up with one please pop over here & share!
