I am the good shepherd… John 10:11
Did you ever pet a lamb? Their hair, wool, has oil that makes it soft. Wool is also thick and curly. It is so thick that if a lamb fell into water, it couldn’t get out. Gentle, helpless lambs need someone to care for them. God loves little lambs!
Lambs are a very special part of the Bible. Sheep provided many things for God’s people: clothing, shelter, sacrifices, horn trumpets and oil flasks. God says the people who love Him are HIS sheep! Protecting little lambs is important to God.
Jesus calls Himself the good shepherd. What do you think a good shepherd might do? He finds fields with sweet grasses and streams of water that move slowly. He cares where his sheep go and what they do. He wants them to be safe and enjoy the best of everything.
You are a Lamb of the Lord. Jesus cares what your life is like. He wants the very best for you. He wants you to be loved and to love His other lambs. Isn’t it great to be in the flock of the Good Shepherd?
How does Jesus take care of you?
