BE STILL - THE STUCK SHEEP
PARABLE: Tonight at the praise and worship
service someone shared about a sheep being stuck. When
it came time to eat, the sheep was missing. So they
searched and found it had laid down beside a small tree
branch. It got its leg caught under the branch and could
not get up. The sun had been beat down on it and it was
very weak and they knew it would die soon without water.
When they tried to loosen the sheep from the branch it
kicked so badly, they were forced to just let it kick
itself to exhaustion before they could free it.
INTERP: Sometimes we are striving so hard to be
free that we are not in a receptive place to receive
God's touch. We must quiet our hearts first.
Ps 46:10 NKJV
Be still , and know that I am God.
