Message from the Morning Devotions
This month, in our devotions we had Uncle Frank Abel do devotions on the importance of animal sacrifice, Uncle Peter Robinson on the Cherubims, Uncle Gord Macfarlane on the topic of frogs and the lessons they show that can apply to us, and Uncle Joel Suntz on the importance of sheep and why God chose to use them. In Uncle Joel Suntz devotions he gave us lessons to take away from the scriptures about sheep, shepherds, and applying to ourselves in our daily lives. Sheep are known as innocent creatures that seem to be gentle and harmless. They tend to care for each other the best they can, like how we should be with our siblings, friends, and anyone else we meet. The way they need a leader, like us, theirs being a shepherd, and ours being the Lord. We can see ourselves as being the sheep while God and Christ are portrayed as the shepherds we should follow and obey. We are loved and guided by them through all we say and do. So like the sheep, we should be gentle and caring, watch out for each other and stay away from evil. We should be respectful and obey our shepherds, not ignoring their commandments or turning our backs towards them. “..behold the lamb of God..” John 1:29. Christ is the perfect lamb of God, who we should strive to be like."
