was attracted to some friends

"He will reply, 'I tell you the truth,
whatever you did not do for one of the least of these,
you did not do for me.'"
- Matthew 25:45 NIV
The reference here was for the least of mankind
but all of nature has been put into man's care.
These "adopted parents" took the time,
out of an extremely busy schedule,
and did the research on how to care for
their little friend until it was old enough
and then followed instructions on the proper way
to prepare it and return it to the wild
once it was big enough to fend for itself.
A great "act of caring"
and a fantastic learning experience
for young and old alike.
"For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities
—his eternal power and divine nature—
have been clearly seen,
being understood from what has been made,
so that men are without excuse."
- Romans 1:20 NIV
