There are three kinds of people in the world. First, there are sheep. The sheep don’t understand life. They live day to day, earning money, paying rent, and just trying to survive. They live, cry, have kids, move around, trying to eek out an existence.
And there are shepherds. These people know how the world works. They understand the reality around them. They know how the universe works, that God created it and designed it for man. They realize the intricate design and patterns around them are not created by chance, but have significant meaning.
Most importantly, these shepherds have a mission. That is, they want to enlighten the sheep. They protect the sheep. The sheep and shepherds have a symbiotic relationship – the shepherds protect the sheep, and the sheep provide help (ex. wool, food) for the shepherds. So they both protect each other.
Then there are the wolves. They are evil. These wolves are the destroyers of the sheep. They attack the sheep, and kill them. But the shepherds are ready to protect their sheep with their weapons in hand. They realize the true value of the sheep. And they will fight, even risking there lives for them.
