A dumb sheep always lives in the present.

A dumb sheep never wonders where he will eat tomorrow, next week, next year. That’s his shepherd’s problem/job.  A dumb sheep just eats the grass in front of him.  Ahhh.

But when a dumb sheep tries to be something he’s not – a shepherd/independent, concerned about the future, the dumb sheep experiences The Curse: stress, fear, frustration, discouragement.  Planning/scheming lead to misery, not happiness.  And a dumb sheep never thinks about the past, his failures, how he can obsessively avoid the pain of failure going forward.  A dumb sheep always lives in the present, eating the grass in front of him.  Ahhh.  Amazing peace.

–DumbSheepDave, thankful for more of the convicting work of his Shepherd’s Spirit, bringing him back to sanity/dependency, from his adventures into independence/pride, hoping the pre-believers around him have been noticing the difference Jesus has been making in 2013
