Everyone is someone's sheep

"The Lord is my Shepherd," - Psalm 23:1a
In the short time Bob Dylan passed through Christianity he wrote a profound song, Gotta Serve Somebody, with the chorus:
...You're gonna have to serve somebody,
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord
But you're gonna have to serve somebody.
The Bible put it this way:
"his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness1
Like a teen thinks dressing like every other teen somehow expresses individuality, one may feel under no rule but one's own. That is an illusion, ask any advertiser; they have known for years we all follow someone or something like sheep!

Thank God, because of Jesus, we can become his sheep; He's a better shepherd than the other ones!
