Two-Headed Deer

Ecclesiastes 4:9

 9Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor.

A hunter from Marshall County, Kentucky shot a 2-headed deer. Actually, an antler and partially decomposing head of a second buck was caught in the antlers of the white tail deer he shot. A photo from a game camera shared online proves the two deer weren’t purposefully put together. As far as how this happened, it’s suspected that the two sets of antlers got locked up when they were fighting for territory. The hunter took the deer to a local taxidermist and hopes that his trophy of the interlocking bucks looks the same way the animal did when he harvested it. The hunter said, “You never know what can happen when you’re out there hunting, and it’s just nice to show people how crazy a moment can be.”

Deer are very social and travel in groups called herds. The herd is often led by a dominant male. The case of two-headed buck exemplifies domineering behavior of male deer and the tragedy of territorial struggle. Two dominant bucks cannot share a territory and ended as trophy to the hunter. Domineering behavior and territorial struggle had also caused undesirable testimonies in local churches. The Lord Jesus prayed for believers in John 17:20-21, 20I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me.

Jesus Christ prayed for unity among believers because He expected a problem of disunity among believers. The devil exploits the problem of disunity in the church to discourage church member and other potential members. 1 Peter 5:8 warns us, 8Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.  Differing opinions may provoke a conflict but it is not impossible to agree to disagree. By God’s grace actively at work in us, we can be unified as a church and have harmonious relationship.

        Lord Jesus, bless Your church to have harmonious relationship.
