Two Shepherds

November 19, 2010 § Leave a comment

Life has two shepherds.  The one is “the worthless shepherd who deserts the flock” (Zechariah 11:17), and therefore do “not care for the lost, or seek the young, or heal the injured, or feed the healthy, but will eat the meat of the choice sheep, tearing off their hoofs” (11:16).  Fortunately, at many places in the Bible, we are reminded of the Good Shepherd.  It is hard for us to truly distinguish between the worthless and good shepherds in life, unless we recognize that the real distinction here is between God and all human beings.  The Lord is the only one worth trusting as a Good Shepherd.  During this upcoming holiday times, are we able to identify the pasturing of the Good Shepherd among His flock in the world?  And will we be able to participate in what the Good Shepherd is doing among the lost, injured, and hungry?
