My sheep hear my voice.
Listen to the Good Shepherd and you will not go astray.
I found a reflection by Don Schwager who says, “we are very much like sheep who stray – and we become easy prey to forces which can destroy us – sin, Satan, and a world in opposition to God and his people… The sheep who heed the voice of Jesus, the good shepherd, have no fear. He leads them to everlasting peace, joy, and community with God and his people.”
Our day-to-day lives are fraught with difficulties and suffering, particularly now, during this global pandemic. We can face them alone or we can follow Jesus, our shepherd, who will bring us safely through every difficulty to that place of peace and joy with God and his people. Listen to the voice of the Good Shepherd!
Let us Pray
You are the Good Shepherd who secures what is best for each one of us. In you alone I place all my trust and hope both now and forever. Open my ears to hear your voice today and to follow your commands.
