So we’re over halfway through OCT-ober, so we better do some fun facts for OCT-opus before the month is over. Did you know: octopus actually do not have 8 arms–they have 6 arms and 2 legs. Also, a baby octopus is the size of a flea when it’s born, octopus blood is blue and one more–octopus have three hearts. Interesting stuff, right?
In our society, we have sayings about having heart–we connect having a lot of heart as a hard worker, someone who never gives up, but also someone who is kind, and loving. So you could say that calling someone an octopus would be a nice thing? Having a lot of heart is good in your relationship with Jesus too–the ability to love more.
13 Be careful. Hold firmly to your faith. Have courage and be strong. 14 Do everything in love.
1 Corinthians 16: 13-14 (ERV)
Dear Jesus, give me more heart, give me more ability to love others. Help me to not be limited. Forgive me for my selfishness. Amen.
