STORY OF SHEEP

In the Highlands of Scotland, sheep would often wander off into the rocks and get

into places that they couldn’t get out of. The grass on these mountains is very sweet

and the sheep like it, and they will jump down ten or twelve feet, and then they can’t

jump back again, and the shepherd hears them bleating in distress. They may be

there for days, until they have eaten all the grass. The shepherd will wait until they

are so faint they cannot stand, and then they will put a rope around him, and he will

go over and pull that sheep up out of the jaws of death. "Why doesn’t the shepherd

go down there when the sheep first gets there? You see they are so very foolish they

would dash right over the high edge and be killed if they did!" And that is the way

with us, when we try do save ourselves thinking that we are a good person, kind ,

generous, honest, we are foolish and deceive ourselves, which leads to our eternal

destruction.
