After 20+ years of studying, teaching and preaching, I am almost embarrassed to admit what I’m just now learning:
Goats cannot be convinced.
Sheep hear the Shepherd’s voice and follow Him. So, my sole focus should be to speak with His voice as I follow Him.
Not only should I speak His words but with the Spirit in which they were spoken. Love.
“He will not cry out, nor raise His voice, Nor cause His voice to be heard in the street. A bruised reed He will not break…”
In short, I’ve got to stop yelling at goats. It’s futile.
And, I also should not be surprised nor discouraged that there few sheep and many many more goats.
But, my desire should be (and is) to get connected with every sheep that I can.
1 Corinthians 11:1
