"When Jesus saw the vast crowd, His heart was moved with pity for them, for they were like sheep without a shepherd;"
This should not refer to us. We have a shepherd, The Shepherd "The sheep that belong to me listen to my voice; I know them and they follow Me."Jn 10:27
Everyday, sometimes every hour or every minute, we are given the choice to follow The Shepherd.....or not. Let us not be clouded by pride, we ARE sheep. Let us not be dumb sheep, who think we don't need a shepherd. Let us follow The Shepherd.
How is He telling us to follow Him today? 1 Jn 4:7-10 "Beloved, let us love one another, because love is of God; everyone who loves is begotten by God and knows God. Whoever is without love does not know God, for God is love."
There are times this seems almost impossible, to love one another, but we have been given THE example to follow: "God sent his only Son into the world so that we might have life through Him. In this is love: not that we have loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as expiation for our sins."
THE Shepherd, THE Example, THE Love of God (Which "has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us. Rom 5:5)
Let's not be dumb today.
