This morning my husband and I laugh about a cat that’s just sitting on top of a house.
This little cat surveys his territory with such authority–such superiority–as if it all really belonged to him. In contrast to the huge house, and the whole neighborhood for that matter, this cat appears tiny.
But he doesn’t know that. Or if he does, it’s of no consequence to him.
Even if someone tried to tell him he owned nothing, was master over nothing, was ruler over no one, he wouldn’t believe it.
He lives out of a different reality, and you cannot change a cat’s mind about it. He owns this neighborhood, so watch yourself.
No matter how small we seem in contrast to what’s around us, maybe we need to survey our God-given territories with new confidence–like the tiny orange kitty.
