On Being Sheep…

Being “sheep” is not all that flattering, until you realize what that says about our Shepherd….
1Pe 2:25  “For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.”
That I am like a sheep is a sorry reflection; but that I have a Shepherd charms away the sorrow and creates a new joy. It even becomes a gladsome thing to be weak, that I may rely on His strength; to be full of wants, that I may draw from His fullness; to be shallow and often at my wit’s end, that I may be always regulated by His wisdom. Even so doth my shame redound to His praise. … you, ye lowly ones, who delight in the valley of humiliation, and feel yourselves to be taken down in your own esteem—to you it is that the Shepherd becomes dear; and to you will He give to lie down in green pastures beside the still waters. – Charles H. Spurgeon
