Why it’s okay for Christians to own pets

To me pets are training wheels to human relationships, learning to love and care for pets, teaches you how to love and care for humans and through our pets, we learn moral values like sacrifice, loyalty and unconditional obedience and love. We also learn how beautiful life is when you care for a helpless creature that is totally dependent on you and that helps us understand how God loves us when we are helpless and totally dependent on him. I once read about an atheist who said the first time he ever considered God might be real is when his first child was born and he was overwhelmed with love holding that baby in his arms and seeing that new life which did not exist 10 minutes ago, made him believe in God. The other thing is limiting your own financial obligations will not automatically free up wealth for those who have far less than us and you can help them alongside your pets.
