2 Years & 232 Days: The Shepherd
Last week at Women of Faith, there was one illustration that really stood out to me. Sheila Walsh talked about Jesus as our Shepherd and told of how the Israel shepherds would take care of their sheep. They would lead them where they wanted them to go. If one of the lambs got stuck, the shepherd would go back and find the lamb, lift him on his shoulders and carry him for a while. Isn't that a beautiful image, one of Jesus carrying us on his shoulders when we get stuck?
