It’s barely a sheep tale. And it’s about a crucial issue. So I’m posting it as a blog post (just previous to this one) for a while. But even now you can also find it in the Pasture Parables Pages at this link: He Makes Me Lie Down.
However, either before or after you read the parable, I strongly urge you to go to this link and read Ann VosKamp’s whole article, How to Live in This Economy, and the comments that follow it on the High Calling Website (linked in her post). She speaks it so beautifully, our need for sabbath rest, and so many other people’s comments are so filled with wisdom, you really need to read them also in conjuction with “He Makes Me Lie Down.”
May you know the joy and beauty of His sabbath rest.
