Many who used to behave like fierce animals have changed their personality. This dramatic change was foretold in a Bible prophecy. (Read Isaiah 11:6, 7.) We read there about wild animals, such as wolves and lions, who live in peace with domestic animals, such as lambs and calves. Why would they have peace? The prophecy continues: “Because the earth will certainly be filled with the knowledge of Jehovah.” (Isaiah 11:9) [excerpted w 18 my green highlight]
“knowledge of Jehovah” aka True God of Compassion…a progressive compassion education of positive changes…acting with agape & compassion helps all-us-fellow-fragile-breathing-life live together/get along in Peace:)
Eccl. 9:4: There is hope for whoever is among the living, because a live dog is better off than a dead lion.
Practical commentary on above verse: [excerpted How to Achieve True Success AWAKE! 2014]
WHAT IT MEANS. If you work secularly, your job should be part of your life—but not your whole life. Really, how successful will you feel if you are at the top of your profession but lose your health or the respect of your family? People who are truly successful endeavor to keep their work, health, and family life in proper balance.
WHAT YOU CAN DO. Take care of yourself. Get proper rest. There is little benefit in becoming a workaholic who sacrifices everything—health, family, and friendships—for false success.
