Charlie and Wally have that natural instinct—when they see something that can run, it must be chased. Whether it is a small squirrel or a large deer, they will be in pursuit. I yell at them to not chase deer, but it is of little use. The deer always win.

Sometimes I chase whims and fancies that are not of God. God must be yelling at me not to chase these whims and fancies, but I am probably like my dogs and don’t listen.

Proverbs 12:11 “The one who stays on the job has food on the table; the witless chase whims and fancies.”
