LOST like sheep

Sheep are stupid.

They really are. They can find their way through a tiny hole in a fence but they can never work out how to get back. They run away from everything, whether it’s scary or not. Being a sheep isn’t a compliment!

But the Bible often says we’re like sheep. Isaiah 53:6 says:

We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to our own way

We’ve gone astray. We’ve gone off the path, tried to find our own way, and got lost. Sometimes we’re very aware of that.

We just can’t make sense of life and don’t know how to get out of the mess we’re in.


Sometimes we think we’re doing fine and it’s not until much later that we realise we’re heading in the wrong direction without God.


What do stupid, lost sheep need? A shepherd.

Is there something in your life that you’re worried about at the moment? Maybe there’s a situation you’ve got into and don’t know how to fix it. Share it with God, and ask him to be your shepherd and show you the way to go.
