The Lord Is My Shepherd
Are you preaching sheep? We saw little chicks and ducks today at the Family Farm Center. They were so cute! Yet we seem to remember that ducks can be mean when they grow up. It's always interesting to realize when you look into the aspects of sheep, how unflattering Jesus' referencing them was to the rest of us humans. Dumb? yes. Really dumb? yes. hmmm, I guess we do need a shepherd.
And why is it that we so love to hear that Psalm when life takes a turn for the worse? Lack of responsibility as related to sheep? Maybe that's it, but I think its just a plain feeling of comfort from the shepherd. How sweet it is to imagine God that way.
