Like a Caged Animal

"get out of my Photo!!!" by chefjancris
Abusers hate when they lose control. They do everything within their power to maintain their power, but that doesn't work on everyone. Eventually, someone will push back and their secret will become shouted upon the rooftops. This is when they feel like a caged animal.

Animals feel desperate in cages and attack even when someone wants to help. Abusers sometimes become more careless or more aggressive in their attacks. They do not want to be caught! But they don't see that being caught is actually a freeing experience. Now they can be released from the cage of their sins.

When abusers are held accountable, they can use that opportunity to repent. They will have access to professional help. They can come closer to their Savior and suffer only a fraction of what they will in the eternities.

Jesus Christ said that "It were better for him a millstone was hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones" (Luke 17:2). Abusing a child is a serious offense. Only Jesus can remove that millstone.
