We all go through seasons of busyness.
Sometimes those seasons are short but mine looks to be ramping up. Where to find the time? Less sleep works but isn’t my best answer. Less writing will likely happen.
A friend shared this short video from local retired pastor Ed Dobson. I have heard Ed speak many times at various venues. A great follower of Jesus. After his ALS diagnosis, I had a chance to share with him my step-dad’s ALS story.
It’s not always about the spotlight or the number of people – sometimes its just about one sheep.
By this time a lot of men and women of doubtful reputation were hanging around Jesus, listening intently. The Pharisees and religion scholars were not pleased, not at all pleased. They growled, “He takes in sinners and eats meals with them, treating them like old friends.” Their grumbling triggered this story.
“Suppose one of you had a hundred sheep and lost one. Wouldn’t you leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness and go after the lost one until you found it? When found, you can be sure you would put it across your shoulders, rejoicing, and when you got home call in your friends and neighbors, saying, ‘Celebrate with me! I’ve found my lost sheep!’ Count on it—there’s more joy in heaven over one sinner’s rescued life than over ninety-nine good people in no need of rescue.
