True Shepherds understand that the occupation of sheepherding requires a tremendous amount of commitment from the Shepherd. He must be willing to unselfishly give himself to the sheep on a regular basis.
|Now Ewe know that living life on the edge is dangerous!|
|Hay little Lamb Chop! Make sure ewe eat all ewe-r veggies!|
Anyone want to join me for a Bite to eat?
The mother Alligator must give the right amount of time when constructing the nest.Using its mouth & front paws, the gator constructs a nest in 3 days using both dry & damp vegetation.It forms a mound ever so carefully that will hold 20-70 eggs in the hollow center.This process forms a natural incubation chamber.
I'm preparing my "nest-egg" for retirement!
The Alligator mother waits 9-10 weeks before approaching the nest. She lays her head near the structure & grunts. Then she listens for an answer from the young inside. Timing is so important here! If she uncovers the eggs too soon or too late, it could spell disaster! Giving the right amount at the right time is critical!
|EWE "CRACK" me up!|
Long distance is NOT the next best thing to being there!
Shepherds understand, more than most people, the generosity that vulnerable sheep require on a regular basis. They willing GIVE because of their love for the sheep!
|I Love what I do because of EWE!|
The Good Shepherd illustrated generosity by giving just the right amount at just the right time for Ewe & me! That's Good News for us because He called & we answered !
"But do not forget to do good and share,for with such sacrifices God is well pleased." Heb.13:16
