Jesse Tree - Day15 - The Good Shepherd

A good shepherd is important for the sake of the flock. That was the message we read in Ezekiel today. And if the current shepherds can't cut it, then The Lord our God will take care of it.

And isn't that what happened. The Lord, Our God came to us and was our shepherd. And he was a Good Shepherd. He sought out the lost and the sick. He didn't lead anyone astray.

We don't live in an area where sheep are a common sight - and shepherds even less so - but it doesn't take much imagination to understand why a shepherd is important. And why that shepherd needs to be good.

Our symbol today was a shepherd's staff. The readings were: Ezekiel 34:2b, 4-5, 10-12, 15a, 16a, 23-24; Psalm 23:1 (The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want) and John 10:11, 16, 27

And apropos nothing, this is my 500th post!
