Dolphins are amazing creatures!

Did you know dolphins can’t drink salt water? They are actually a desert animal, like a camel. They get their water from their food and fresh water springs.

Living in water, so they don’t drown dolphins sleep half their brain at a time. They close one eye and let that half of their body sleep. Later they switch sides.

Incredible! But it got me thinking, who worked this stuff out? Someone had to spend day and night living, sleeping, swimming with the dolphins.

What a huge sacrifice! Only someone who really loved dolphins and wanted to help them would do this! 

That is actually the story of Jesus. In Jesus, God came down to live with humans because He loved us and wanted to help us.

Pretty humbling when you think about it.
