Are you good at watching sheep?
So what is it and can those of us who do not watch sheep for a living capture the same heart?
It seems that a shepherd is a shepherd so that they are not caught up in the things of this world. When we have to make a stand or be “peculiar,” we can. It also means that money is probably not the most important thing in our lives either.
It seems that a shepherd has time on their hands to really connect with God – how many shepherds in the Bible were not friends with God in some way, shape or form? This passion proved to be a launching pad into ministry for many of them.
There are so many times when I am made to feel that it is not glamorous and definitely not “spiritual.” What turns the tap in my heart that makes me look past how I feel and enables me to be a channel of God’s message to others? What I know is that if I am in the place God wants me to be than God and I can do extraordinary things, no matter how ordinary my occupation seems to be.
