Jon Demeter brought us a message last Sunday (9/13) about God’s discipline on His children. The message was great and hopefully it spoke to some of the athletes. One point he expounded on is when sheep wander away from the rest of the flock. Yes, like Jesus said, a shepherd will go and find that one sheep. But what was interesting is that if a sheep continues to wander off time and time again, the shepherd will actually break it’s legs and carry it while tending to the rest of the flock. There is the hope that the sheep will heal and learn not to wander off.
In the same way, I wonder if there have been times in my life that God is “breaking my legs” in order to (1) discipline me and (2) teach me not to wander off. Is He is breaking my legs now???
