Not Stupid Just Nearsighted

A recent study done by the University of Cambridge has revealed that sheep are much more intelligent than scientists had previously thought. In fact, they are exponentially more intelligent than other mammals with similar brain sizes. But, what they also found is that sheep are extremely nearsighted. Their nearsightedness is so severe that they lack the ability to see more than a couple feet in front of them. Scientist believe this is why people previously thought they were simply stupid. So, it looks like we are more like sheep than we even knew. We often have a hard time seeing how our actions today affect the future and that the trials today are just God’s way preparing us for what is coming tomorrow. We lose sight of how our words and behavior hurts others. We become afraid of the unknown. It’s so easy to get focused on what’s right in front of us and forget about what is happen beyond our scope. We can sometimes forget that God sees our future with the utmost clarity. So, when we’re uncertain and we don’t know what’s ahead, just trust the voice of the shepherd. His vision is much better than ours. – Pastor Brad Brandon

John 10:27 “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:”
