Feed My Sheep

Day 170  June 20, 2013

David wasn’t thinking of being king when he was tending sheep; he was just doing what God sat before him.
John Fisher     English Clergyman (1469-1535)

Feed My Sheep

Feed My Sheep

“Make something unintended out of existing instructions (clothing patterns, model kit instructions, craft instructions, etc.) by not following the directions correctly,, by using different materials, or by using the physical paper the instructions are on.”   from 365 A Daily Creativity Journal by Noah Scalin

Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my lambs.”  A second time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Tend my sheep.”  He said to him the third time, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter felt hurt because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” And he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep.”  John 21:15-17

“But you can’t focus on things that matter if all you’ve been is asleep for forty years. Funny how sleep rhymes with sheep. You know.”  -Charlie Sheen

    very nice! The Charlie Sheen thing kind of threw me as he’s….well, a nut. But the rest was had my mind thinking hard. Feed the sheep? I’m going to be thinking on that one for a while.

      Thanks! Agreed about Charlie, but the quote is so true…so hard to be in discipleship if we are walking around asleep to the needs of the world. Also…the picture in my mind of sleeping sheep just makes me giggle. Let’s give Charlie a break on this one, ok?
