A turtle is an interesting animal in God’s cre­ation. God has given turtles unique characteristics, that are different from other animals, to stay alive.

Their hard shells protect their soft bodies from animals that eat them. Although turtles are slow on land, God gave them webbed feet, so they can swim fast in the water. On land, animals can catch them easier.

There are many kinds of turtles. One example is a sea turtle. They are found in the sea or on the shore by the water. Some turtles swim as far as several thousand miles to reach the beaches where they nest.

The shell that protects the turtle from danger is like God protecting His people from the devil and his wicked followers. Turtles are cold-blooded and do not like cold things. Just like we, as Christians, do not like wicked things or ways.
