The Good Shepherd & His Sheep

While we think a little lamb is adorable , experienced shepherds are prone to say that sheep are the dumbest animals on Earth. Sheep are clueless about their condition. They don't know that they cannot survive on their own, and they will stray from the shepherd's care unless carefully watched. A lone sheep is easy prey for wild animals because they are completely defenseless creatures. Sheep don't seem to know it, but the truth is they cannot survive on their own, they must have a shepherd. Our Lord knows we are sheep, and in our Scripture reading today, He tells us that He is the Good Shepherd and we are secure because He will give His life for us. That is how much a good shepherd loves his sheep.

FOR TODAY: Pray - Lord, thank You for Your watch over us. Keep us from straying from Your side.
