Why Do Sharks Eat People?
Sharks attack people beacuse they are meat-eaters. When they are hungry, they will attack anything that looks good to eat. Sharks don't go looking for people to attack - they just react to what comes near them. The best thing to do is to be smart and stay away from sharks. When we go where we shouldn't go, we get into trouble - like walking in poison ivy or playing in a thunderstorm. There are dangers in the world, and we should be careful to avoid them.
For wisdom will enter your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul. Discretion will protect you, and understanding will guard you. (Proverbs 2:10-11, NIV)
Genesis 3:17-19; Numbers 21:6; Deuteronomy 32:24; Jeremiah 8:17; Ezekiel 34:25; Matthew 10:16
Note to Parents
The question of why God made animals that can harm us is answered earlier. The answer according to Scripture is that we live in a sinful world. (Genesis 3:14-19)
