When I was still going to meetings, a WT study article said this:
13 In Scotland some young lambs were grazing in a pasture when one of them strayed to the side of a hillock and tumbled onto a ledge below. It was uninjured, but it was frightened and unable to climb back. So it started to bleat plaintively. Its mother heard it, and she too began to bleat until the shepherd came and retrieved the young lamb.
14 Notice the sequence of events. The lamb called for help, the ewe added her voice to its cries, and the alerted shepherd sprang into action to rescue it. If a very young animal and its mother can sense danger and immediately call for help, should we not do the same when we stumble spiritually or face unexpected dangers from Satan’s world? (James 5:14, 15; 1 Peter 5:8) We should, especially if we are lacking in experience either because we are young or because we are relatively new in the truth.
My comments: so it is the lamb/mother's responsibility to find the shepherd? or the shepherd's? Doesn't Jesus say he leave the 99 behind and search for the one?
My husband and I commented on that with a few jws after the meeting, asked if that concerned them somewhat. They all said it did; but you tell they were uncomfortable about saying they did. Makes you wonder if the WTS ever cared about the sheep.
