A shepherd's faith—today!

There's a scene in a movie that always touches my heart. The film is Land of the Bible, and it's shown at the Bible Exhibit at the Christian Science Center in Boston. The scene shows a shepherd seated on the ground. He has a lamb in his arms and is trustingly looking upward in prayer. The narration that accompanies the film says: "The people of these lands were sure of their God. They praised Him and they thanked Him."

Whenever I see that film and that particular scene with its rich spiritual message, I think of the simple men and women of Bible days and the deep reverence they had toward the one God. These people had such trust in God's goodness and His ability to meet their needs. They had faith, an innate spiritual conviction that God exists; that He is good and that He takes care of His people, those who love Him.

Does God love all of His ideas?
