Good Shephered Sunday
Jesus is our Good Shepherd. If you think about it, we all look to a leader; one who will not leave us when danger threatens. We want someone who is an intimate friend; one who knows us completely and one we know and trust so we can follow with confidence. I think Jesus used this image to help us to see Him as one who cares, one who loves each of us, who calls us by name and goes before us and leads us to green pastures and still water.
A great deal has been written about Jesus as Shepherd, but I am still with the line from the Gospel, "I know mine and mine know me."
Have a restful, prayerful Sunday! Let us pray, too, for all who are trying to discern their vocation in life as this is also Vocation Sunday.
