There are many shepherds, but not all of them are “good.” Many flee when they see the wolf coming and care not for the sheep. But Jesus laid down his life for his sheep. Not all men are his sheep, but those who will believe in him; and not one of his sheep shall perish.
And we pray:
You are my Shepherd, O Lord. You laid down Your life for me, and You provide all things that I need from day to day and forever. Your goodness is unmatched by the hireling shepherds of this world. Your goodness and Love surpass all that of man to an infinite degree and leave us in wonder and awe. We worship You Lord as You are at The Right Hand of The Creator of all things. Love me Lord, Embrace me, cover me – Amen.
