These fellows were hopping around, eating and doing their kangaroo thing on the warm Saturday afternoon I saw them.
The thing about zoos is that there is always a fence between you and the animals. That is a good thing because it keeps them in and it keeps you out. Plus it protects you from each other.
So, when taking photos of zoo animals there is often a screen or fence that shows up in your photo (as you can see).
I got to thinking about this and was reminded of a verse in 1 Corinthians 13 (verse 12) which says, “For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.” (NKJV)
This wonderful verse is nestled in a very poetic passage that describes God’s unconditional love. This verse captures our current status where we know and relate to God by faith. In this life that is how it will go.
Once we are with the Lord in glory, we will see Him face to face and will know Him openly and clearly. It is certainly something to look forward to.
In the case of the kangaroos, I think the fence is just fine. I don’t think I would want to be in there with them for too long. I have seen too many videos of well meaning people who were either bitten or jumped on by these tame looking critters.
For now the view through a fence is fine with me..
