We get lost
To be able to come and go unmolested was the Jewish way of describing a life that is absolutely secure and safe. When people can go in and out without fear, it means that their country is at peace, that the forces of law and order are supreme, and that they enjoy perfect security (Barclay 68)."
Shepherds are different than Rabbis
Suffocating on smoke, Hoopii heard the building cracking. He called out, "Is anybody in here? Anybody here?"
Wayne Sinclair and five coworkers were crawling through rubble and had lost all sense of direction when they heard Hoopii's voice. They cried out, and Hoopii responded. "Head toward my voice. Head toward my voice." Following his voice, Sinclair and the others soon made their way out of the crumbling building (Kelly).There are a lot of voices that lead us into danger not away from it, I know those voices well. The most well-meaning voice can lead us to death if we do not hear and heed the voice of our Lord and Savior.
Jesus provides the Ultimate SAR
