Two sheep

But the shepherd of black sheep said, “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’” (Luke 15:4-6)

The shepherd rejoices when he finds the black sheep; likewise, the father rejoices over the return of the prodigal son (Luke 15:22-24).

The world fails to understand; the white sheep of the flock cock their heads in sheepish bewilderment; and the black sheep are thankful.

Thankful that their obviously black coats have been washed clean.

Thankful that the shepherd gathers and treasures all of the wool.

To him, it’s all going to come out in the wash anyway.
