Human Will vs Animal Instinct

I came upon a short paper that I apparently wrote in response some random conversation about the topic or something I heard on the discovery channel. Here is a short excerpt...

"While animals and humans both have the desire to survive, it was created within them very differently. God provided animals with the instinct to live, protect, eat, kill, etc. to maintain a certain order or balance within the animal kingdom. It is driven by instinct only to survive and multiply.

Humans, on the other hand, are designed in the image and likeness of our Creator God. We have a will to survive, protect, think, feel, create, and imagine. Our decision making goes through an intelligent reasoning process first before any idea or action is carried out. Much of this may seem 'second nature' or perhaps daily routine is habitual, but nonetheless we 'think it through' (if even for a millisecond) before carrying out our objective."

More to come...

It's just amazing how our bodies were put together - the emotional side, too! We truly are fearfully and wonderfully made.
