I received an email yesterday from friend, Dave McCarty. Using the Shepherd and sheep analogy that Scripture draws between Jesus and the believer, he said:
“Tis so sweet to be a clueless sheep. Asking about everything, thanking about everything. Curious and expectant to see what the Shepherd will do next—which doors He’ll open and which He’ll close. Sheep don’t know what’s best. But they believe their Shepherd does. Ahhh, carefree living.”
Maybe the low-stress life comes from being more clueless, not less. More helpless, not less. More dependent, not less. It’s just another application of how the gospel reverses everything.
