Though she may forget, I will not forget you” (Isa 49:15)
A farmer is sharing a beautiful story from his own sheep pen, where he has witnessed a bitter rejection from a mother sheep towards its new born baby. One fine day morning when the shepherd arrived to tend his sheep, a mama sheep found given birth to two little lamps! Unfortunately, one of the lambs got separated from her mother and twin, and when this little one tries to get back to her mom, she kicks her back! The hungry baby bounce back, but the mother lamb refused to feed her and continued to turn her off!
Luckily the shepherd gets therein at the right time before the little one got injured and rescued her into his strong arms! Overloaded with compassion, the loving shepherd picked up this dirty little one and feeds this abandoned child and gave her all the love she needs to grow big and strong!
