Satan's like a roaring lion
Looking for his daily prey.
Year by year he keeps on trying
To consume men day by day.
If you think you're far too clever
For that devil to defeat,
Then you've shown that you have never
Seen the truth. You're Devil's meat.
Jesus is your only hope, friend.
Trust his power. He will give
Armor--keep your eyes fresh opened,
Keep you safe--so you will live.
Be sober! Be on the alert! Your adversary the Devil is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for anyone he can devour.
--1 Peter 5:8, HCSB
The photo is just a house cat, but that cat has killed and eaten unwary birds. Just as a small bird must beware of the cat, so we must beware of the devil.
