“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want” (Psalm23: 1).
Why do the little lambs love Jesus so much? He is their great Shepherd who loves them with no strings attached. Whether the little lambs are good or bad, He still loves them and will take care of them. Sometimes the little lambs stop following Jesus and they walk in a direction that He has not led them. They get lost and walk in places they do not know or belong. They are left alone and are vulnerable to the big, bad lion. (1 Peter 5:8) The lion only wants to scare and hurt the little lambs.
This is why we must be careful to follow Jesus, the Good Shepherd, and walk in the direction He is walking. When we follow Jesus, we keep warm, safe and He feeds us so we are never hungry or thirsty. Jesus will keep us safe from the lion because He loves us so much and wants us to be close by His side. He will never leave our side and will always lead us on the best path.
When have you felt lost or alone? Did you pray to Jesus and trust Him as your Good Shepherd?
