Parable of Being Stuck in a Tree

Brayden got himself stuck in a tree. He wasn't sure how he ended up there and was pretty nervous.

He asked his dad for help and patiently waited for his arrival, not trying to take control of the situation and jump himself, possibly resulting in injury.

Finally, Dad arrived and Brayden was happy that he was no longer alone but felt a sense of trepidation as awareness of his predicament set in.

"Don't panic Brayden, it's ok.  Just sit down and be calm. Trust me."

"Ok dad, I trust you"

"Just reach out for me, I'll catch you. I promise I will not let you fall"

Rescue would come so much sooner if we were all only this trusting...

Ezekiel 34:11-12,16

"For thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick"
