All we like Sheep…

Read Psalm 14

Focus on verses 2-3

Sheep are apparently not known to be the brightest animals in the pasture, and they also seem to have strangest habits. Some of these characteristics are strikingly similar to human behavior. For instance, if you attempt to chase a herd of sheep they will scatter, but if you earn their trust and lead them they will stay together and follow. While the majority of sheep are content to stay with the herd, there are some who wander and stray from the herd. Being somewhat directionally challenged and not too bright they seem to have difficulty finding their way back and often need to be rescued by the shepherd.

In Psalm 14, David describes how the Lord looks for people who understand and seek after God, but He finds none, because we are all corrupt; there is not even one whom the Lord finds worthy. In other words, we are all in this together we’re all in the same fix. We are all evildoers to some extent. The most foolish among us claiming that there is no God! The truth is we have all “like sheep, gone astray”. Each of us has chosen to follow our own way at some point. The only way to be restored is to repent and return, and acknowledge the truth that Jesus truly is who He says He is. To believe anything different, though it may be your choice, is not wise.
