The God-given traits of cats ("you exist to serve me") and dogs ("I exist to serve you") are often similar to certain theological attitudes held by many Christians in their view of God and their relationship to him.

By John Piper

http://www.ywampublishing.com/p-552-let-the-nations-be-gladbrthe-supremacy-of-god-in-missions.aspx
John Piper's Let the Nations Be Glad has provided thousands of missionaries, pastors, and church leaders with a biblical basis for missions. Drawing on texts from the Old and New Testaments, Piper demonstrates that worship is the ultimate goal of the church and that proper worship drives missionary outreach. He describes prayer as the fuel of missions work. He illustrates that while suffering is the price of missions, God is worthy of any sacrifice. He also examines whether Jesus is the only way to salvation and discusses the extent of the missionary enterprise, seeking to define the scope of the task and the means to reaching "all nations."
