Day 24: Pick an animal

If you were asked to pick an animal that represented you, what would you choose? Would you pick a sheep? My neighbors had three sheep. Ben, Bob, and… Fred. I loved to go visit them. Whenever I did, the results were predictable. If I entered the pen, they ran to the opposite corner. When Steve their owner came in, and called them, they surrounded him. They loved him. I will spare you the details about how smelly there were. The point was they knew Steve, and especially his voice. In today's reading, Jesus uses this analogy and more. Tomorrow we will look at the idea of Jesus as a Shepherd. Today, let’s consider our “sheepiness.”
