a shepherd’s heart

The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.

Psalm 23

Abel was a shepherd, and he made a sacrifice. Moses was a shepherd, and he led God’s people to freedom. David was a shepherd and he became a king. Amos was a shepherd and he became a prophet.

Jesus was a shepherd too, and He did all these things.

And more. The baby born in Bethlehem would become the Good Shepherd who lays down His life for His
sheep.

That would be us.
