Become Like A Sheep

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. Psalm 23:1

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.… There is a certain confession necessary before a man can join in these words; we must feel that there is something in us which is akin to the sheep; we must acknowledge that in some measure we exactly resemble it, or else we cannot call God our shepherd.…

A sheep is one of the most unwise of creatures.… It knows how to go astray, but it doesn’t know how to come home again. The sheep is foolish.… Have we ever been brought to feel that in matters of providence, as well as in things of grace, we are truly and entirely foolish?

Do you, O my friends, feel persuaded that you are foolish? Have you been brought to confess the sheepishness of your nature?… If you are brought to confess, “I am a silly sheep,” I hope you will be able to say, “The Lord is my shepherd, I can not have any other, I want none other: he is enough for me.” – Charles H. Spurgeon
