When I was in the third grade, there were two groups in my class — the Beavers and the Snails. Beavers were students who were helpful and completed their work on time. The Snails were the children who did not cooperate and did not finish their work. Everyone in my class wanted to be a Beaver. Why? Because the Beavers were allowed to leave school early and have special treats.
Our Bible Reading today tells us that the Son of Man (Jesus) will come back to earth again. Jesus will be the king, and all the people of earth will gather around Him. Then Jesus will separate the sheep from the goats. The sheep are people who follow and obey Him. The goats are people who have not done what Jesus wanted them to do.
When I was in the third grade, I wanted to be a Beaver. But now I want to be one of Jesus’ sheep. I want to follow and obey Him. Use every opportunity you have to learn about Jesus and follow Him. Then you can be a sheep, too!
