A video of a man singing ‘Amazing Grace’ to a donkey at an Ohio sanctuary for rescued donkeys is going viral.
The man could be seen hugging the donkey by its neck as he sang the popular Christian Hymn while the donkey listens to the solemn and calming lyrics of the hymn, delightfully.
A song that has its roots in slave trade, the hymnal written by John Newton has touched and changed the lives of many since it was first sung and even so now, it has its effects on an animal as seen in the video.
The donkey was, in a manner, redeemed by the owner from its usual hard life of burden and undignified life and now, welcomed to a life of freedom and love. Just as Jesus Christ has redeemed us from our old sinful self and made us right with God the Father.
A Christian hymn like no other, ‘Amazing Grace’ continues to remind all the believers of Christ our wretched past and God’s redemptive love while at the same time comforts us with the promise of eternal life where we will have no less days to sing God’s praise.
It is heart-warming to see a lovely couple committed to the welfare of an animal such as the donkey, otherwise known only for hard labour and its stubbornness, treated with love and affection.
“A righteous man regards the life of his animal, But the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel.” Proverbs 12:10 (NKJV)
Everyone needs grace. All of God’s creations thrive under His amazing grace. God’s amazing grace is sufficient for us and we must also extend the same grace to all His creations.
