I’m still confused about all those different languages the people were speaking in the last story you told me.
Which people were speaking to the dogs?
The church grew after that day?
So I’m wondering – how many dogs joined the church?
Yes, I’m listening. I’m listening.
One day Peter and John were going up to the temple at the time of prayer – at three in the afternoon.
I thought you said a bunch of people joined the church.
Didn’t they have a great big church building by now?
Why were they going to the temple?
What do you mean, the church isn’t a building?
The church is people?
And dogs too. Right?
I am listening.
Now a man crippled from birth was being carried to the temple gate called Beautiful, where he was put every day to beg from those going into the temple courts.
Did people give him treats?
That’s what I beg for.
Okay, I’ll listen.
When he saw Peter and John about to enter, he asked them for money.
What good is money?
You can’t eat it.
Peter looked straight at him, as did John.
I hate it when people do that.
Then Peter said, “Look at us!” So the man gave them his attention, expecting to get something from them.
Then Peter said, “Silver and gold I do not have, but what I have I give you.
Oh good. Peter must be giving him treats.
Peter said, “In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.”
Oh, I get it.
Peter wants to take him for a walk.
Walks are good.
I’m listening, but I think I’ll follow them on their walk.
Taking him by the right hand, Peter helped him up, and instantly the man’s feet and ankles became strong. He jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God.
That man sounds like he’s fun to go on a walk with.
I bet he’d play with me too.
When all the people saw him walking and praising God, they recognized him as the same man who used to sit begging at the temple gate called Beautiful, and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.
If that man isn’t begging anymore, will people still give him treats?

If we know our master we do not have to beg just ask

Fredrieka, I’m hoping he gives me a bunch of fish. Oh yeah, all I have to do is ask.

He got his treat Bongo and I’m sure that after listening so carefully to the story you will be getting treats too!!! 😉

Marina, I’m waiting
impatiently for my treats.

I think that the man who was begging got more than what he expected!!! Walking is one of the most important things in humans life, of course in Doggie life, too!

Kevin, I bet it was a big surprise to him. He expected a little bit of money and received a gift he couldn’t even imagine getting.

Thanks M.K. I think I’ll take my person for a walk now – as soon as she gives me the treats.
