Why Does God Call His People Sheep?
Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Psalm 100:3
Ever wonder why God calls us "sheep" so much?
We can be just as foolish and helpless. We easily stray. We can't be left to ourselves. All of these are obvious reasons.
But I think there's more to it.
I think He calls us "sheep," because that's the way we were made. He made us to need Him that much.
Here are five reasons (of many) why God calls His people "sheep."
Sheep weren't made to carry burdens.
You will never see a sheep carrying a pack on its back. Other animals are good for carrying things. But not sheep.
