Food for thought. Sheep!
I read this today in Victory over the Darkness by Neil anderson
"Sheep need to be shepherded. They are so dumb that if left to themselves in an open pasture they will keep eating until it kills them. They need a shepherd to make them lie down in green pastures (Psalms 23:3) so they don't eat themselves into oblivion."
We are often refered to as sheep in the scriptures. Makes me think of how helpless i really am, even when i think I got it all in control.
When he (Jesus) saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd.
