Though a tiny creature & considered "unclean" in the Old Testament, Myotis Bats have sophisticated secrets that have contributed greatly to discovering the principles of sonar for mankind! Equipped with a unique Echo Location System, scientists continue to study the Bat's sonar system, which is estimated to be about a billion times more sensitive than the best that man has produced!
|I brush twice a day because some bugs are just "Nasty"!|
Bats emit ultrasonic sound waves in their Echo Location System. These waves strike objects that echo back messages, which signal to the bat what objects to avoid. Being aware of "danger" around them is a Bat's strength! They also use this system to locate bugs, of which they consume up to one-third of their body weight on a given evening!
|Just think of me as a High-Flying Bug Zapper! |
The Myotis Bat sports many unique features besides it's sonar ability. First, they are 300x more resistant to radiation than rats. Second, Bats have arteries that stay ageless! Finally, the bat's waste product, or Guano, is used as a rich fertilizer & was even used to make gunpowder in the Civil War! In spite of all these features, it is the bat's awareness of it's "space", that allows it to act rapidly upon sensing danger & avoid possible harm.!
|When things appear to "cave- in",why not "hang-out" with me?|
Sheep are quite the opposite of Bats, especially when it comes to their awareness of danger around them. They are easily startled & extremely unaware of the danger around them. Sheep need a Shepherd to assist in watching over them.
Ewe know I'm not the sharpest tool in the box! No Sonar!
The Shepherd is like a sheep's sonar, leading & guiding them to safety. He intervenes on their behalf when threats do arise! Wolves, coyotes, cougars, & bears are put on notice !
|Try to mess with them & ewe'll have to go throiugh Me!!|
"Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,I will fear no evil for you are with me;..." Ps.23:4
