We saw Snow Sheep and since the Scripture often refers to us as sheep I wanted to read all about them. It was actually quite fascinating. These particular sheep had horns and it said you could tell their age by the rings on the horns. Also the place where they had them was not just a nice little pasture area but rather there was also large stones piled on top of each other that went up quite high.
It was amazing to watch them interact with one another. They were all close together not because they had to be, but because they wanted to be. Not one of them was left off on its own it made me think of how we should be acting unified, close together. There was plenty of room for them to wander around and graze and climb.
Often we think of them being in a pasture but actually they like to live on the side of a mountain, where the water comes down from. It was their feet that really spoke to me. Romans 10: 15 says, "and how show they preach if they are not sent? As it is written, "how beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, who bring glad tidings of good things"! Also in Ephesians 6:15 "having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace."
The feet of sheep are very interesting they are very hard on the outside yet very soft and tender inside. The outside needs to be hard and tough and strong to protect the inside from the elements they need to walk on over the stones on the mountainside in order to protect the tenderness of the inside. We need to be the same. We need to be soft and tender inside being prepared to share the gospel of peace. Only Yeshua can give us a personal peace that every person desires, but we need to be ready at all times to share that good news! The tough exterior of the feet makes me think of the shield and the breastplate that will protect us from any enemy attacks or things that may try to harm the soft tender parts of our lives that are there for sharing, molding and growing!
When Paul was talking about the armor of God in Chapter 6 the soldier's feet were covered not with soft leather style boots rather they would have been wearing metal armored boots to protect their feet. So too with us as we wear our armor led us keep our inward parts soft and tender for the Holy Spirit dwells within us and be ready always to bring good tidings and good news to a lost and dying world.
B'Shem Yeshua Hamashiach, Amen
