I have two fire ant bites on my left foot.
It's red, swollen, itchy and fiery.
It hurts to walk, to bend my foot.
It hurts to wear my flip flop or any other shoe.
I know that I get bad reactions to fire ants.
I avoid them at all costs.
Yesterday, at the park, Levi walked into a fire ant pile.
Immediately, they start crawling on him and biting him.
I ran over.
Saw the ants.
Scooped him up and started brushing them off of him.
Knowing full well that I would probably get bit somewhere.
But, I had to rescue Levi.
I had to protect him.
His safety was more important than my pain.
And I would knowingly and willingly do it all over again.
As I walk around today with some pain in my foot, I was struck.
Jesus does that for me.
He runs into the fire ant pile to rescue me.
And He would do it again.
