I LOVE this sheep! Love her. Don't know the fellow in the photo, however, according to FB, where I found the photo, they are from New Zealand. This sheep avoided being sheared for years by hiding in caves. Years. Six years to be exact and when they did finally shear her, there was enough wool to make 20 suits. 20. Oh my mercy me!
Kind of like sin. We wear it, grow it, hide from it, deny it, touch it, taste it and, people, unlike Jesus, it doesn't taste good. Why do I resist letting the Good Shepherd, the Great Shepherd, the Only Shepherd shear off my sin? I am such a sheep.
"Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow."                                      - Psalm 51:7
