Sheep will, however, recognize the farmers voice and recognize when the farmer is going to feed them. At that time, it's much easier to get their attention.
Jesus shared this type of information with those that followed him. He stated in John 6, that the people followed him because He fed them physical food, not because they recognized that he just fed thousands of people with 5 loaves and 2 fish. They were fed, but didn't see the miracle.
Are we following people or things for physical or temporal reasons?
Do you recognize the voice of Jesus and does He get your attention?
Have you been fed and didn't recognize the miracle?
Think on these things today. It's worth pondering.
With lots of love and hope!
