In A Word: Red
Red is the color of my dog's (Dakota) objection over me giving the red bird more attention than him. I was finishing up my cereal while listening to the bird sing and Dakota began growling with impatience. He thought I would forget to give him the last part of my cereal like I always do. He was angry that the bird was interfering with his morning routine. I told him to hush and when he did, I gave him the last drops of milk that he so desperately (not) needed. Red, funny enough, is also the color of the camera I used to take a few pictures of the bird before Dakota's barking scared him away.
Red is color of the blood Christ shed on the cross so that we who believe would have forgiveness of sins and life eternal with Him. Red is the color of love and compassion that Christ has for His followers. He came not into the world to condemn us, but to give us life (John 3:16-17). Red is the eternal love of our Lord and Savior.
