Sigh. Ever wondered what happened to the sheep that got lost?
How long did it stay waiting for rescue?
What was going through its mind. did it ever think it would be found by the Shepherd?
Did it think that the Shepherd noticed? After all the difference between him and the other sheep is…well he probably did not think there was much of a difference.
Sometimes we feel that way when we are lost. Does He notice or care when we lose our way?
Lost sheep tend to be so vulnerable just like we get when we don’t know where we are going. We’ll believe anyone who is willing to help. Just so that we do not feel lost even though we are not sure the guide even knows where we are going.
I guess that’s why the Shepherd likes lost sheep. They fight back less when being saved than the one that is bent on going the wrong way.
