Gathering Alligator Eggs
Robert volunteers to gather alligator eggs. Seriously? Who volunteers for this? Robert needed someone to help him, distract the momma alligators, so he called his own brother. All his brother had to do was tap the momma alligator on its snout with a long stick. LOL! This just seems like it would always end in disaster. On this day, it did end in disaster, but nothing like either of these brothers had ever imagined. In the midst of the disaster, Rob heard something and it got his attention quickly.
From the Bible:
Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe; the works that I do in My Father’s name, these testify of Me. But you do not believe because you are not of My sheep. My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.” (John 10:25-30, NASB)
When he puts forth all his own, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice. A stranger they simply will not follow, but will flee from him, because they do not know the voice of strangers.” (John 10:4-5, NASB)
