From The Isle of Hope (sorry this website is no longer up)
“…Israelite shepherds in the biblical times would discipline a rebellious sheep by breaking the legs of the animal. Then they would tote the sheep on their shoulders for however many weeks it took for the legs to heal. Once the legs were healed, the sheep would follow and trust in the shepherd. Will God have to break us of our rebellion? Or will we run and throw our arms around the neck of our loving and faithful Father?”
Some of us have to have more than just our legs broken to respond to God. What will God have to break of yours?
