Why do we call people crabby? Crabs do pinch hard and move sideways. Unique, odd and awkward – yes. Crabby? Well, no. We saw this pretty rainbow crab at our Underwater World aquarium a month ago before it closed for good.
And we saw this too:
Decorator crabs! We are not certain how many there were as they were so well camouflaged. The crabs attack when needed, defend when threatened and camouflage to protect themselves. We wonder what they really look like under all that camouflage.
Camouflage is what we are good at too – to hide our flaws, to put on a facade, and sometimes to deceive. We are more concerned about our physical appearance rather than our spiritual well-being.
We can spend a lot of money, time and effort taking care of our mortal bodies but often neglect the spiritual nourishment of our eternal souls.
For the Lord says:
“…God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Sam 16:7 (NASB)
