Is this not the perfect metaphor for the Christian life?

God, our heavenly father, the good Shepherd, sees us when we have gone astray, and rescues us from our own paths of destruction.

And then we go and do this.

Make sure you watch to the end, and let us know whether you agree.

Proverbs 3:5-6

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart

and lean not on your own understanding;

in all your ways submit to him,

and he will make your paths straight.”
