I grew up on a farm with lots of sheep. I'm well acquainted with those beautiful creatures. They're really dumb by nature, and have a mind of their own, yesvery stubborn and determined to do it their way. That's who they are, and they act it out oh so well, believe me. Now, before we're too hard of those loveable creatures, we need to take a look at our hearts. The Bible compares our human nature to those of sheep, totally depraved, always trying to do things our own way. Isaiah chapter 53, verse 6 reveals both mankind's problem and God's remedy. "We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way, and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all."
