Heard a story once about a parrot and a pitbull.

Seems a thief was in the process of burgling a home one night when he heard a raspy voice in the dark say, “Jesus is watching you.”

The thief dropped to the floor and listened for a bit just a little freaked out. Nothing. Certain there was no one in the home, he got up and began looking for things to steal.

“Jesus is watching you” he heard again.

This time he risked turning on his flash light and swept it around the room. There, in the corner, on a perch, was a parrot.

“Jesus is watching you” it rasped.

As the thief breathed a sign of relief his flashlight dipped just enough to see a rather large dog food bowl with the name “Jesus” etched in its chromed surface.

As the hair began to rise on the back of his neck, he heard a deep throaty growl in the dark to his left.
He ran from the house.

“A thief comes to steal and kill and destroy, but I came to give life–life in all its fullness.” – John 10:10

When thieves come to steal, kill, and destroy, Jesus gives life and watches out for you.  ;)
