When we hear the words defenseless and reliant upon, we sometimes immediately think, "that is not me." We sometimes like to think that we are headstrong, self-reliant and independent. Culture wants us to think this way! God calls us to be his sheep and reason being is because they are always in need. Sheep are in need for a shepherd, someone who can care, protect and give them direction. God wants to be our shepherd and the head of our lives. If we are to be head strong and independent, their would be no need for him. He wants us to have a need for him and to acknowledge that he is Lord above all things that he has created. Lets be his sheep, constantly needing him to care, protect and guide us through this life.
Matthew 25:33, NLT " He will place his sheep at his right hand and the goats at his left."
