"The shepherd always tries to persuade the sheep that their interests and his are the same. Stendahl"
Just the other week the Pastor of our church told us that when a shepherd notices one of his sheep keeps habitually straying, he will break the sheep's leg. With the sheep not able to walk, the shepherd will put it on his shoulders to carry it. By the time the leg has healed, it now stays nearby the shepherd at all times.
