It Had To Be Ewe

A few days ago an adventurous, two-year-old slipped unnoticed out of his daycare facility in a neighboring town.  Unescorted, he ambled over to a busy road where an alert motorist spotted the lad and returned him to a much-relieved search party.   His mother told reporters she was sure the driver had saved her baby’s life.

We adults are prone to wander off on our own at times, often arriving in harm’s way.  “Like sheep without a shepherd” is one simile used in the Bible to describe a life lived apart from God’s watchful care.  “All we like sheep have gone astray.”

So, have you placed your destiny In the strong, loving arms of the Good Shepherd?

“I alone am the Good Shepherd, and I know those whose hearts are Mine, for they recognize Me and know Me, just as My Father knows My heart and I know My Father’s heart. I am ready to give My life for the sheep. My own sheep will hear My voice, and I know each one, and they will follow Me. I give to them the gift of eternal life, and they will never be lost, and no one has the power to snatch them out of My hands." John 10:14-15, 27-28
