And the Sheep Follow Him . . . .

In Eastern countries, where flocks and herds constituted the riches, and the feeding of them employment of the principle inhabitants, practices prevailed very different from aught that we have been accustomed to see.  Instead of a keeper following his sheep, and employing dogs on all occasions to drive them, the shepherd himself walks before the sheep, whether he leads them to pasture, water, or the fold.  The shepherds going before the sheep, and leading them to pure waters and verdant pastures, is a very striking and beautiful representation of God’s preventing grace and continual help.

Amen!

About William Moore

I am a Christian, saved and living by God's grace. I am doing this blog on a book called, "The World of Religious Anecdote," or, as I like to call it, "Christian Anecdotes." The reason why I am doing this blog, on a book, instead of about myself, is because there are so many unedifying things in the world, so that we, as Christians, need to take the world and subdue it for our Lord. I believe and hope that is what I am doing here, in this blog. I try to do my posts twice a week, in order to keep the flow going. I hope you enjoy reading, learning, and sharing this book, "Christian Anecdotes."
