Pls Read God’s Silent Message: Jn 10:11-18
“I am the good shepherd.
A good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep.”
Wow! This is an X-Factor message!
Yet, in reflection, “Do we ever feel Jesus’ passion for us? … do we ever sense that we should be in gratitude for such a huge effort accorded to us by our Shepherd? Have we ever been a good sheep then?
These questions lead me to consider some thoughts on …
Sir Issac Newton’s first two laws of physics:
- An object at rest tends to stay at rest.
- An object in motion tends to stay in motion.
The Law of Inertia!
If we want something at rest to move, in the same way that we want to slow or stop something which is moving, we’ve got to apply some force in either instance.
God has given us too much – GIFTS of all sorts! Yet, we’ve just been too timid to do something! We have our parents who intend to return God’s shepherding through us by helping us grab some, if not every opportunity to boost us up; yet, we’re just too shy to give-in and try. Instead, we keep our motion running away from chances that would unleash our potentials.
The Law/Obligation of Relationships!
To whom much is given, much is also expected!
Shall we ever feel the benefit of belonging to a flock, we should also have the gratitude to return the favor by striving to excel in every little thing that we do.
Shall there be a natural tendency to keep on doing what we’re doing, let it be in accordance to God’s will. Let us not resist positive changes over our negative state of motion.
We have to overcome “our inertia” of negativity and allow God’s force to keep us in motion! – only then would we be a good sheep so that we could also be an excellent Shepherd. 🙂 #sunset
