The hedgehog is a curious mammal who self-anoints the scents of other animals to camouflage its true identity to keep it safe from predators. God anoints us through the Holy Spirit when we are baptized. We needn’t be like the hedgehog camouflaging our anointed oil. The Holy Spirit is open through us for the World. Payoff of being anointed by the Holy Spirit: Doing the work of God that is unimaginable and immeasurable (Ephesian 3:20).
