Psalm 28:11 Save your people and bless your inheritance; shepherd them and carry them forever.
It seems to me that we sometimes behave the same way with our Shepherd, happy to oblige when we’re having all our needs met but scampering out of arm’s reach when it’s time for a course correction. Thanks be to God, who with mercy and grace, carries and loves us—even when we need a shepherd’s crook.MOVING FORWARD: How often are you obedient to God? How often do you need the shepherd's crook?
