Like a loving shepherd

Did any of you see the story about the sheep that wandered away from its shepherd and its wool grew so thick and heavy it threatened his life? (Story here: http://www.cnn.com/2015/09/03/asia/sheep-record-wool-shearer/) The sheep couldn’t see. The weight of the coat made it almost impossible for him to move. I saw so much truth in that story for us. When we wander away from our Shepherd we become weighted down. We become blinded to what is good and healthy and pure. But when we return to our Shepherd our lives are restored. If you feel mired down by poor choices, ask Jesus to rescue you. Like a loving shepherd seeks and saves his lost sheep, He will honor your prayer and welcome you home.
