Wolves Among Sheep
I had a dream last night where I found myself inside a sheep pen. In biblical times the shepherd would act as the door to the sheep thus protecting them from predators. In the dream last night the shepherd was absent and therefore the doorway to the sheep pen was unguarded. I found myself, as I stated above, in the sheep pen I remember picking up the shepherd’s crook although I’m not called to be a pastor. I remember using it to uncover wolves in sheep’s clothing that were among the flock.
Why the shepherd was absent leaving the sheep unguarded I have no idea. Perhaps he was a hirling as Jesus said and abandoned them when he saw the wolves coming. That wasn’t revealed to me in the dream, only that he was not where he was supposed to be doing what he was supposed to be doing which was guarding the sheep.
