Herodotus

I’m reading Herodotus’ the Histories right now for class, and I stumbled across a passage that reminded me of what Christians should be like as they walk together:

As in the case of Smerdis, there are two accounts of her death; the Greeks say that Cambyses set a puppy and a lion-cub to fight, and that his wife was amongst the spectators; the puppy was getting the worst of it, when another from the same litter broke its chain and came to its brother’s help, and the two together proved too much for the cub.

“Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world.” 1 Peter 5:8-9

Satan prowls like a roaring lion. As Christians we’ve got brothers and sisters who are all of the same litter. Don’t be deceived we are at war against the enemy. We can’t fight this battle alone. Come together shoulder to shoulder, break our chains, and fight as though we are at war against the enemy.
