18 Apr W.O.W. Sick Sheep
Sheep are liable to many diseases, many of them are weak and feeble; these a good shepherd taketh pity of, and endeavors to heal and strengthen. So the saints of God are subject to manifold weakness, temptations, and afflictions, which are moved the Almighty to great compassion, and sorely to rebuke the shepherds of Israel for their cruelty and great remissness towards his flock. Jehovah said, “The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye heard that which was sick…” -Benjamin Keach
Many modern pastors are like the dark doctors of old times who had a lot of good notions, great expressions, fine theories, and were good at making plain truths difficult, and easy truths hard. They had a lot of words, but no knowledge and understanding. They stopped men long enough for them to listen, but in no way did they profit them or better them in living the Christian life. It is better to present truth simply, soundly, and with real heartfelt sureness, that presenting truth where no man can underwent it. That is like wearing fake jewelry and passing it off as real.
Elder Paul Jackson
