What the Sheep See

May 12, 2019


What do our “sheep” see when they look at us? We’re called to hear the shepherd’s voice and then, as leaders of the flock, to lead them in following Jesus. We do that by reflecting his care: ensuring that people are well-fed spiritually and physically; creating an environment of peace where people feel valued, cared for, and loved; and caring about the flock more than we care about ourselves. When we do that well, others will see and want to follow where we lead. Perhaps that will lead us to pray a different sort of prayer: “Lord, help me to be the kind of sheep that leads others to the Good Shepherd.”
