A dumb sheep never feels alone,
never feels the weight of the world on its shoulders. But a dumb sheep trying to be a shepherd, feels very alone facing a to-do list. Up to me. Pressure to succeed. Agenda. Striver. Suppressed fear of failure, humiliation, being pitied, maybe ridiculed. A dumb sheep content to be a dumb sheep, never experiences fear, frustration, discouragement. All problems are the Shepherd’s problems. A dumb sheep just has fun. Amazing peace and joy.
What can a dumb sheep do when it realizes it’s feeling alone with a to-do list? CONFESS. Confession returns the dumb sheep to its Shepherd.
