Image result for shepherd sheep

We’re called to hear the shepherd’s voice and then, as leaders of the flock, to lead them in following him. We do that by reflecting his care — ensuring that people are well-fed spiritually and physically; that we create an environment of peace where people feel valued, loved and cared for; and that we care about the flock more than we care about ourselves. When we do that well, others will want to follow where we lead.

Perhaps that will lead us to pray a different sort of prayer. And a good prayer for us is, “Lord, help me to be the kind of sheep that leads others to the Shepherd. Amen.”
