Skip (8)

we all know David was a shepherd and wrote about it in the psalms, but i learned some things about sheep that i didn't know before....

  1. Did you know that they will destroy the ground where the grass they eat grows, which is obviously why the shepherd has to move the sheep around.
  2. Did you know that sheep are actually afraid of moving water, and the shepherd will often have to build a little pool in the stream in order to make a still place so that the sheep will drink from it.
  3. When sheep are skittish, as in walking through dark valleys and such, the shepherd will not only speak to them but with hus staff will tap the sheep so they know he is still there, and remain calm. This is such a beautiful in-depth picture of how our Lord takes care of us. I love this psalm.
