278. Which side of the black sheep? - part of a Sunday school lesson about the Good shepherd


There are no black sheep in God's flock - an idea for creative prayer

Sometimes we feel like the black sheep. We can make ourselves believe we don’t belong with all the negative words that we say about ourselves.

Which side of the sheep do you believe? Turn it that way up. Or maybe if you believe the negative things but want God’s help to believe the truth, leave the black sheep with the positive statements showing, as a prayer. 

A creative prayer idea in which we're going to dwell on the beautiful words that the Lord says about us.
