    "I am the Good Shepherd: the Good Shepherd gives His life for the sheep." John 10:11 The entire purpose and duty of the Shepherd is to care for the sheep. In whatever things we need whether for food and clothing and shelter, or protection from predators Jesus cares for us continually, and puts Himself between us and every danger or threat. If He leads us up into rocky and sparse places He is still our Good Shepherd. If we need washing and grooming, He does so with love and skill and the right firmness and gentleness. If we are hurt or injured or sick, He cares for us to make us strong and healthy again. If one wanders away because we are stupid and simple, and need to be watched! then He knows where to search and find us, and how to bring us back to safety. The Good Shepherd puts our needs first, and knows well how to maintain us. If we want to help Him be a Good Shepherd for others, then we need to learn from Him everything there is to know about the business of being a shepherd.
