Re: Verse reading–1 Peter 2:11-3:9 (Day Three)
“Now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.”  You can do whatever you want—unless you want to find the cure for a heart that runs after lies, turns a blind eye to beauty, fears its own shadow, and helps others dig their own graves.  Without a shepherd, we are dangerous to ourselves and to others.  Without an Overseer, we attempt to rule over everyone else with no thought for love.  We end up with the world we have when the human spirit has its own way with the universe.  But there is a Shepherd.  There is an Overseer.  He knows your soul.  You can return to him.
