The Shepherd's Point of View

As I was cleaning the house Sunday afternoon and listened to this song, me and the Shepherd spoke.  How could you be on the mountain and yet in the valley with me?  Foolish question maybe, but it was still a human child's question.  Then I began to remember that a Shepherd when watching a flock of sheep will usually find a high vantage point so that he can overlook the sheep and from that vantage point He can see all the sheep and any wild beast trying to sneak in to harm them.  The Shepherd can also see if one of the sheep are trying to wander onto a certain path and he can see where the path leads.  If the path has danger ahead the Shepherd will then go down and lead that sheep back to where He wants the lamb to go.
