When the day comes that we will kneel at the feet of our beloved Savior, having nourished His flock, I pray we can answer as did Peter: “Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee.” These, Thy sheep, are loved, they are safe, and they are home.
– Sister Bonnie H. Cordon, Becoming a Shepherd
We as children of God, and disciples of Christ, are asked to be shepherds and serve and care for His sheep. In other words, we are asked to look out for our brothers and sisters.
Each of us have needs and we all struggle and deal with our own individual problems. We are asked to look after each other, just as Christ did and would do if He were still here.
I have had many people in my life who have been there for me when I needed it most, and even during times when I didn’t realize I needed it.
I am far from perfect, but I try to serve those around me when I can. I know it’s something I need to work on, but I am grateful for those around me who help me to be a better shepherd.
