This picture is in the new publication from this year's Convention, titled "Return to Jehovah". Part 1The Lost One I will Search For. Personally, the animal looks scared of the Shepherd. Could it be that it knows that the Shepherd is really a wolf. Also, look at how Jehovah has shaded the STRAYED animal from the hot sun, and even how there are plants around to eat. Does this not warm your hearts to know that Jehovah provides for strayed ones? :-D It is also noteworthy to mention that the animal never made an attempt to look for its way home. Also, the Shepherd never asked the animal if it wanted to return. What is your take on this image? Feel free to even share a creative story to accompany the photo.
Here is the story the org has given to this image. "The sheep is bewildered. Somehow, while nibbling grass in the pasture, it got separated from the other sheep. Now, it can see neither the flock nor the shepherd. Darkness approaches. Lost in a valley where predators roam, the sheep is defenseless. Finally, it hears a familiar voice—that of the shepherd, who runs toward the sheep, picks it up, wraps it in the folds of his garment, and carries it home." (Return to Jehovah) Available on Jw dot org
