Who is the Good Shepherd

Short Thoughts 05 07 17

 Every year we celebrate Good Shepherd Sunday.  It is good to be reminded that we need someone who will watch over us, look out for our best interests, and be our guide and protector.  Of course, spiritually Christ Jesus does just that.  He came to show us the way to eternal life caring for us along the way.  He taught us, died for us and rose for our sake. He never leaves alone us to fend for ourselves as He sent the Holy Spirit to be with us as our advocate, protector and guide for all time.  However, being the good shepherd is not just reserved for Jesus.  Each of us can be a good shepherd in the spirit of Jesus.  We all have a chance to look out for someone.  We can be a guide to, a mentor of, or a protector for any number of our brothers and sisters.  Let Christ flow though you, as you look out for and help one another in your daily lives.
