The Tender Shepherd

The Tender Shepherd…

Charles Darwin based his theory of evolution on the law of “the survival of the fittest.” It’s basically the same as the “law of the jungle.” It states a truism – that which survives is that which is most fit to survive – or, those who survive are the strongest.

From Darwin’s law came “Social Darwinism,” which states that the most fit or strong humans, or races, or nations, are those which survive.

Out of such theories came Hitler’s attempt to destroy the Jewish people in the name of a German master race. The world in many ways, does function after the law of the jungle.

But we don’t go by the law of the jungle – We go by the law of the Lamb – which states that, in the end, it’s not the strongest who prevail – but the good.

Jesus gave His life as a Lamb – and yet his life has become the most powerful, prevailing, and world-changing life ever lived.

So don’t seek to be the strongest or the most forceful – seek to be good and holy – and, in the end, you will prevail – in the law of the Lamb.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8

Today, don’t seek to gain or get ahead – but seek to be good – righteous.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
