Tom and his dog Wilson_Attentiveness vs. Unconcern

 Attentiveness vs. Unconcern
"Showing the worth of a person by giving undivided attention to his words and emotions"  (IBLP)

A beautiful example of showing worth of people through Gaetano Marino and his dog Wilson.

. . .  And in this corner, weighing in at 206 lbs., down from 228, is Wilson, the Gentle Giant.

Part Great Dane and part English Mastiff, Wilson attracts attention wherever he goes. From the beach to a stroll through the downtown, he is always the center of attention. Wilson, however, takes all the attention in stride and perhaps this is what makes him such a great therapy dog.

We are sad to say that Wilson has recently passed away. We will miss him, however, his work will be remembered.  Give thanks to our Father for people like Tom (Gaetano Marino) and dogs like Wilson.

God showed worth to the world by sending His Son to die for our sins.

1 John 4:9-10
"And God showed his love for us by sending his only Son into the world, so that we might have life through him. This is what love is: it is not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the means by which our sins are forgiven." TEV

2 Corinthians 1:3-4
"What a wonderful God we have-he is the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the source of every mercy, and the one who so wonderfully comforts and strengthens us in our hardships and trials. And why does he do this? So that when others are troubled, needing our sympathy and encouragement, we can pass on to them this same help and comfort God has given us." TLB
