The greatest Shepherd ever is Jesus. Some fun facts about sheep/shepherds:
1. Sheep only respond to the voice of their Master shepherd.
2. Need guidance and constant help from their Master.
3. When the sheep were hungry, the Shepherd would round them into an area where it almost was enclosed and he would stand at the entrance guarding against predators as they ate.
4. Shepherds knew how much water, food, and safety sheep needed, and therefore the sheep were content and trusted their shepherd.
We are Jesus’ sheep. He will guide, supply, and keep us from the evil one. Are we listening to the Shepherd’s voice or the wolf in sheep’s (or should I say Shepherd’s) clothing?
We may have wants, but if it is not meant to be, like sheep, we must be content and continue to follow our Master.
