1 Peter 2:25
“For you were like sheep going astray, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.”
Sheep. They’re probably the world’s stupidest animals. They herd. People congregate. They are easily influenced by each other – so are we. They also need a leader just like us. They are absolutely pathetic when they are alone, and vulnerable to the world’s dangers. To the Lord we are sheep, but He is the perfect Shepherd and He is faithful to come find his lost or wait for us to return.
