The Protector – Jane Beck
What is required of a person to act with justice, kindness and humility? This often demands a strength of character with a certain level of ferocity, acting on behalf of others with no voice of their own. To do this with humility and teach-ability also demands strength and courage. The ability to not hold oneself up high but to consider others as better and pour out oneself in the service of others. In reflecting on these thoughts, I kept coming back to the image of a lion, poised for action in order to defend the pride. The lion is ever ready, ferocious and vigilant. A lion as a symbol of protective strength, reflecting the light of another greater Lion who has gone before us.
