Have you ever spent much time thinking about sheep and those who care for them? Sheep are not the smartest of animals, but what a cool relationship that they have with their shepherd. Jesus called us sheep, and there are some similarities between you and me and sheep. Enough said.
Jesus said when he saw people hurting:
David said this about himself and his relationship with God:
This week and even last weekend I have spent some time thinking about this deal of what a shepherd does for us. Margaret Feinberg in her book "Scouting the Divine" she describes this relationship in living color. Her description stole my heart and has allowed me to say the same thing that David said ... God is my shepherd.
Looking through John 10 will open our eyes to who Jesus is as our shepherd. The rest of today's devotion will simply be highlights from what Jesus says the Good Shepherd is about.
