Lessons From A Sheep Dog
Man's best friend can do more than just bring you your slippers and paper in the morning, especially Lass, who taught his owner an important spiritual lesson in obedience, forgiveness and transforming love.
When an untrained, dangerous sheep dog came to Dr Keller he saw a challenge where everyone else saw a lost cause. He dedicated his time and effort to train Lass to become a hard working sheep dog and a faithful friend. And in return, Lass taught Keller amazing spiritual truths that no human could.
This wonderfully honest and revealing story about a dog and his owner is much like a parable - a story packed with wisdom about the kingdom of God. Through reading about their unique relationship, their obstacles and their triumphs you too can learn from Lass that no-one is a lost cause, and that God can make all things new.
What you see is not always what you get - and this true story of a man and his dog is no exception. Woven just under the surface of this simple parable, Keller presents profound spiritual truth. It is the story of Lass, a worthless animal thought to be untrainable, who becomes a magnificent and valuable sheepdog - not terribly unlike how God's love can transform our worst characteristics into blessings that serve to further His Kingdom. Allow yourself to see Biblical truth in this classic tale of what can happen when you yield to the Master.
